OWEN-ANDERSON RECITAL 
SCORES WITH LARGE HOUSE 

Glee Club To Tour,- 
Music Alumni Hold 
Tune Clinic 

On Monday evening, January 10, an audience of about 400 attended a 
two-piano recital given by Marian Anderson and Benjamin Owen at Engle 
gall. Mr. Owen had been heard in two previous recitals, but this was Mrs. 
Owen's initial appearance at the piano at Lebanon Valley. 

Monday night's recital was also the first two-piano performance of the 
year, and its warm reception evidenced the fact that it had been eagerly anti 
cipated for some time. The auditorium was filled to capacity, and after the 
first two selections the enthusiastic applause was sustained until Mr. ana 
Mrs. Owen had come out of the wing twice to take their bows. These selec- 
tions were Pascaglia in C Minor by Bach, transcribed for two pianos by Alex- 
aner Siloti, and three movements of the dainty and melodic Mozart's D Ma jor 
Sonata, Allegro conspiritO', Andante, and Allegro. 

After a brief intermission Mr. and Mrs. Owen again appeared at the two 
pianos to render the colorful and harmonious Rachmaninoff Suite No. 2, op. 
17, consisting of Introduction, Valse, Romance, and Tarantelle. At the in- 
sistence of the audience on encores Mr. and Mrs. Owen played the delightful 
Minuet from L'Arlesienne Suite, and Ritmo, by Infante. 

Mr. Owen has been an instructor in 
piano at Lebanon Valley Conservatory 
of Music since the fall of 1936; hence 
the consistent excellency of his per- 
formances is familiar to music lovers 
in this vicinity. He is also a member 
of the secondary piano faculty of the 
Julliard Graduate School in New York 
City, as is Mrs. Owen, who is a gift- 
ed and accomplished soloist, having 
appeared in that capacity with La 
Orquestra Filharmonica in Havana, 
Cuba. 

Mr. and Mrs. Owen will appear in 
New York City on the twenty-fifth 
of January in a two piano recital as 
one of a series of concerts given for 
the benefit of the scholarship fund of 
the Mu Phi Epsilon National Music 
Sorority to be held in the auditorium 
of the Barbizon-Plaza Hotel. 

Lebanon Valley's Glee Club, under 
the tutelage of Professor Rutledge, 
w ill make a concert tour starting Feb- 
ruary 4. This is the first venture of 
the Club on an extended tour, previous 
trips being only one or two days in 
kngth. 

The concert schedule on the pro- 
Posed trip will include performances 
a t Mechanicsburg, Pa., on February 
4; at Carlisle on February 5; on Feb-

SAW SHUFFLE 

PROVES SUCCESS 



Under the general leadership of 
Phil Lester, president of the sopho- 
more class, the annual soph hop, dig- 
nified or undignified by the name of 
Snow Shuffle, was held on January 7, 
on the perennially favorite scene, the 

Annville High School gymnasium. Al- 
though the Snow Shuffle motif was 
perhaps a few days early, the decor- 
ations were carried out on this 
scheme, with snow-men, icicles, and 
all the accounterments of winter, but 
strangely enough, no shuffles. The 
winter scene was worked up and 
carried into execution by Lucie Cook, 
Evelyn Evans, and John Lynch, who 
formed the decoration committee. 

The Greystone Orchestra from 
Harrisburg played the latest tunes 
for the dancers. Louise Saylor and 
Aimee Witmer constituted the pro- 
gram committee. Members of the 
faculty who chaperoned the affair 
were Miss Mary Gillespie, Dr. and 
Mrs. Black, Professor and Mrs. Car- 
mean, and Dr. and Mrs. Wagner.

Richie led this discussion. Various 
beneficial suggestions were offered, 
but it was emphasized that the char- 
ity should begin in the organization. 
It was urged that all were to ap- 
proach delinquent members in order 
to interest them in returning to the 
meetings. In summary, Dr. Richie 
endorsed quite heartily the sugges- 
tions that were presented. 

During the business meeting a com- 
mittee was formed whose members 
are Paul Horn, chairman; Audrie 
Fox, Jane Ehrhart, and Paul Slon- 
aker. This committee is to function 
with the other Christian organiza- 
tions of the campus when there is the 
need. An invitation was extended to 
the group to attend a social gather- 
ing at the home of Dr. Lynch on Feb. 
7. The meeting was concluded with 
the Mizpah Benediction.

Monday Recital. 



"Don't Bother Me," 
Says Quittie Editor 

Man Shoos Writer 
With Epigram 

The editor of the Quittie, Wm. F. 
Clark, stated in a recent interview 
that he wishes people wouldn't pester 
him with interviews, that he is mak- 
ing no predictions concerning the pu- 
blication date of the annual — he con- 
siders it questionable taste, he says, 
if his prediction comes true, and 
rather silly if it doesn't — except to 
say that he supposes it will not be 
published in time for Easter. 

We asked him what was likely to 
go on the inside of the book. This, it 
appeared, stumped him, until we tum- 
bled to the fact that he was merely 
giving us the stall as politely as pos- 
sible. The fact of the matter, we su- 
spect, is that he knows perfectly well 
what every page is going to be like, 
but just doesn't feel like telling us. 
Well, let him keep his old secret, then ! 

It is reported, however, that there 
will be several departures from cus- 
tom in this year's book, though it is 
alleged that no feature of value will 
be omitted. According to the plan 
under which Clark and his staff of 
seventeen or so persons are writing 
the book, they hope to secure a unity 
of effect lacking in almost all year- 
books, and especially those published 
hereabouts. The editor refused to di- 
vulge the nature of this plan, saying 
that all would be seen in due season — 
"including my bill for the second se- 
mester, if necessary," he added, we 
thought a trifle more curtly than 
necessary. After all, reporters must 
eat too — presumably, at least. 

We secured this much information, 
however, to wit, that the book will not 
be in the form of a novel, that it will 
not be written exclusively by Clark, 
that tomorrow is Friday, and fare- 
thewell. We were also to glean, that 
the editor apparently knows what he 
is doing, although it must be admitted 
that very few other people do. "They 
aren't supposed to," he said. 

The yearbook will be printed this 
year, as last year by the firm of Mc- 
Farlamb from Harrisburg, and en-

KORBALL-TOSSERS OPEN 
SEASON BY 73-4^'VI^Ry 

Artz, Frey, Billet Wreclf 
Lancaster Opposition 
By Basket Barrage 

By Sam R utter 

Coach Metoxen's Lebanon Valley College dribblers auspiciously opened 
the 1938 basketball season with a sensational 73-42 victory over F. & M., de- 
fending champions, in an Eastern Pennsy College league tilt, played on tha 
Lebanon High School floor. The Blue and White courtsters looked decidedly 
impressive in rolling up what is believed to be a record total of points in their 
league. The forty-two points registered during the first half is also consid- 
ered a new scoring record for the league. 

Keeping a large gathering of fans in a dither of excitement, the Dutch- 
men combined speed and aggressiveness with shooting accuracy that was lit- 
tle short of astounding; the Lancaster boys just never had a look-in. It was 
hard to believe this outfit was virtually the same quintet that enjoyed only 
indifferent success last year. 

One of those who transformed that mediocre team into an invincible 
machine was Bobby Artz, of Lebanon, who in one year bridged the gap be- 
tween freshman and varsity basketball, and led the Blue and White on 
Saturday night with a juicy total of 19 points. This flashy newcomer was 
particularly devastating in the vicinity of the basket, following up shots 

" with a verve that netted him three 



SENIORS LEAD 

HOOP LEAGUE 



Following in the footsteps of their 
predecessors, the Seniors have gotten 
off to a flying start in the Interclass 
Basketball League. In their two 
starts so far they have beaten the 
Sophomores and Juniors for a record 
of two victories and no defeats. In 
the other game played the Juniors 
trounced a green Freshman team. 

The League opener saw the Seniors 
win out over the Sophs in an over- 
time battle by a 23-27 count. The 
Seniors piled up an early lead but 
faltered badly in the second half and 
found themselves only tied at the end 
of the regulation time. Clarence Aun- 
gst led the scorers with 13 points, 
while Dean Gasteiger was the other 
big offensive gun for his team with 
nine markers. For the Sophs George 
Munday had 11 points, Bill Bender 
10, and Charles Belmar six. No other 
member of the team succeeded in scor- 
ing. 

(Continued on Page 4, Column 3) 



beautiful tap-in shots. Besides his 
scoring propensities, Artz found 
enough stamina to hold his opponent 
scoreless and to play a bang-up floor 
game. 

The interesting story behind this 
new satelite in the basketball firma- 
ment relates that Artz hid his court 
talents in high school behind the an- 
tics of a cheer leader. Realizing he 
was much too frail for varsity com- 
petition, Bob manifested his school 
spirit by whooping it up for dear ol ! 
alma mater. On arriving at L. V. C, 
having increased in weight and size, 
the aspiring but inexperienced drib- 
bler made the freshman team and be- 
fore the season was out was starring 
on an otherwise shoddy aggregate. If 
the lad can keep his feet on the 
ground after listening to countless eu- 
logies, his basketball star should rise 
to zenith. 

It must appear to the reader that 
the team which so decisively trounced 
last year's champions was comprised 
of exactly one man, but such was not 
the case. Very much in the fray also 
was Raymie Frey, lanky center and

Sex-Survey Proves Complicated 



Girl's new ideas of sex freedon are 
killing off the old chivalry of boys, 
who are no longer concerned about 
protecting girls' virtue, reports Dor- 
othy Dunbar Bromley, after an in- 
vestigation of sex standards in forty- 
six colleges. Analyzing the attitude 
of the various types of boys from the 
"hot-bloods" to the "Galahads," she 
writes in Redbook Magazine for Feb- 
ruary: 

"From our visits to fifteen different 
campuses and our investigation by 
questionnaire of as many as forty-six 
colleges, we found that the girls' 
standards are changing more rapidly 
than the boys'. But we also found 
that the present-day college man's 
attitude toward sex is a strange mel- 
ange of new and old codes and loyal- 
ties. Old-fashioned chivalry is jostled 
by a shrewd appraising give-and-take 
which makes few concessions to tradi- 
tional notions of femininity and the 



weaker sex. 

"The young man's change of out- 
look is not due primarily to any psy- 
chological or moral evolution of the 
male species. It is rather due to the 
fact that today's girl has come down 
off her mother's and grandmother's 
pedestal — and very willingly. She is 
not ashamed to have her men friends 
know that she is, like them, com- 
pounded of flesh and blood and pas- 
sions. While she is still far more 
idealistic about love and its physical 
manifestations than her brother and 
his friends are, £.he very much wants 
to be appreciated for the human be- 
ing she is, and not for what another 
generation of men thought women 
should be. 

"Today's young man has accepted 
the new order of the sexes with the 
flexibility and the open-mindedness 
of an age that is not yet hardened

BOO, SENATE! 

At the opposite ends of the gamut of governments stand two diamet- 
rically dissimilar types of ruling authorities. One of these is Fascism, or 
absolutism, while the other is anarchy, a state of society where tnere is no 
law or supreme power, a state oi disorder and comusion. *"asci~m is best 
exemplified today by the totalitarian states oi Germany, Itaiy and Japan, 
where the government is "all and in all." All is subservient to the central 
authority, wmch without any consideration for tne individual memoers oi tae 
social order acts for the welfare oi ail combined, wnatever it may consider 
that welfare or common good to be. 

Anarchy is be*t exemplilied by the men's student governing body oi 
Lebanon Vauey College. As Fascism is the one evil extremity, aunuweu 
ail those men not forced to think otherwise by the Fascists government it- 
self, so is anarcny as assureuiy an evu at the outer extremity. Anarcny im- 
plies no laws, or at least no eniorcement oi law, and it * in this sense tnaw 
the local student governing bouy is an anarcny. As a matter oi course, law 
eniorcement cannot be expecteu n the law eniorcement agency itsexi neip* 
or even leads in tne breaking oi both laws of order and decency. Tne human 
tendency has always Deen to covet auu bask in tne giones ox a mgn umce, 
but to snun and ignore tne responsibility accompanying mat po-iwon. Agi-

The question for debate is:

LUDLOW RESOLUTION DEFEATED 

The Ludlow Resolution calling for a national referendum to determine 
when the United States wishes to declare war has been deieated without 
reaching the floor of Congress, and well it should be so. The idea embodied in 
the Ludlow Resolution has been a moot question with American conege stu- 
dents, or at least some small percentage of mem and perhaps more, as to 
whether such a movement, represented by a law, wouid serve the purpose 
to which it would be intended. That is, the question is whether such a law 
would keep us out of war, or rush us headlong into it. Sentiment to such an 
end has been brought to a head by the Ludlow Resolution, and the head has 
apparently been knocked otf. Once more the only comment possible is, "It 
is swell." Those peace-loving people, or fools, who think that all our national 
troubles can be solved by national referendum, by the will of a majority, 
have been "suckers" to use common parlance, for this proposal as they have 
been for every other panacea that has ever been offered. And this is none 
of the least weird. 

It is not only weird in principle, but also in regards to practicality. 
This is a representative government, in which representatives duly elected 
by the people legislate for the people they represent, and such a Resolution is 
inconsistent with the principles of representative government, a government 
of delegated authority. However, this is not its glaring or worst fault, for 
one can argue indefinitely over such intangible questions as principles; but 
its most serious defect lies in the way in which it would hamper the chief ex- 
ecutive in his conduct of foreign policy and in the way it would impair the 
ability as expressed by Secretary Hull, of the administration "to safeguard

the peace of the American people." It 
would cripple our first lines of de- 
fense, our diplomatic corps and our 
naval defense. It would be more than 
embarrassing to have a foe penetrate 
our circle of naval power while we 
were counting votes. It would involve 
the nation in the political currents of 
a nation-wide debate, precisely when 
danger threatens from a foreign force, 
a danger brought on in part by the as- 
surance of the foe that the United 
States must hold a huddle of millions 
of voters before it can determine what 
shall be done. Former Secretary of 
State Stimson accurately states the 
case when he says, that such a refer 
endum would serve only as "an effi- 
cient instrument for the disruption 
of national unity at the threshold of 
a national crisis." Far from being an 
adequate means of preventing war, 
this handicap would open the way to 
war. 

The action taken by the House in 
discharging the Judiciary Committee 
from further consideration of the 
measure for this session of congress 
is the best decision that could have 
been reached. Yet in spite of the fact 
that 55 signers of the petition changed 
their minds and voted against the Re- 
solution, the relatively "close" vote of 
209-188 is not a favorable sign. How- 
ever, the idea has been officially re- 
futed, and well refuted for the caus* 
of peace as far as the United States 
is concerned.

His atti- 
tude is changing— very definitely; but 
■ t is not yet completely changed. 
1 «xhe college boys of today feel 
good will— and plenty of it— toward 
their contemparies of the other sex; 
but this good will presupposes that 
girls are equals who deserve no spe- 
cial consideration. The present gen- 
eration of boys are not out to exploit 
girls of their own class, but neither 
are they out to protect them. They 
m ay have a conscience about getting 
a girl into trouble— and the best of 
them have. But whether the majority 
take the final step— or stop short of 
it—and with what clats of girl, more 
often depends on their sense of cau- 
tion and of the conventions, and their 
own taste and ideas, rather than on 
any chivalrous respect for the other 
sex. 

"Consider the confessions and ex- 
planations of the 227 young men who 
reported by questionnaire that they 
were still virgins at the (average) 
age of twenty. As a group they rep- 
resented the conservative and less 
reckless half of the 470 undergrad- 
uate men who returned questionnaires. 
Yet the reasons they gave for their 
continence show that even with them 
chivalry was far from being in the 
ascendant. Of the 227, seventy-one 
said they had been restrained by 
'ideals and standards' in which there 
may have been an admixture of chiv- 
alry, while sixty-eight mentioned 
fears and inhibitions, forty-seven as- 
signed their continence to a mixture 
of fears and ideals, twenty-three said 
they had been deterred by their own 
fastidiousness and lack of opportun- 
ity, and eighteen left the question 
blank. 

Fear, Not Chivalry 
"The boys who suffered from in- 
hibitions and morbid fears could hard- 
ly be called chivalrous, for they were 
concerned with the risks which they 
rather than the girl would run. They 
were as a matter of fact inclined to 
apologize for their virginity. The 
seventy-one who were motivated sole- 
ly by ideals and standards, had more 
chivalry in them, but even this was 
chivalry with a difference, the differ- 
ence being that they did not seek to 
shield girls, but in all justice, to give 
as much purity to their wives-to-be-as 
they would demand. 'I have an ideal 
°f virginity at marriage,' one wrote; 
a nd another: T have a romantic no- 
tion that love is to be preserved, that 
^ is hard to preserve, and that vir- 
ginity helps in my case.' 

"In contrast to the single-standard 
idealists and to the conventional and 
Pragmatic boys, are the fastidious 
and choosy young men who do not 
think that the sexual act should ne- 
Ce ssarily be linked with marriage, but 
Who prefer to have it on their own 
^jeh terms and intend to wait for the 
ri ght occasion. A New England boy 
fr °m an old family said he intended 
to investigate sex when the approp- 
^te opportunity presented itself, if 
° nl y because he did not want to be 
kicked into marriage by sheer phys- 
lca l attraction. His code for women 
w& s moderate and modern. He would 
jj°t care to marry a promiscous girl, 
he said; but neither would he demand 
Vl rginity of his wife, who would have 



the 



same right to explore the world 



the emotions before marriage as 
e f elt he had. Watchful waiting was 



the word among a number of the 
continent boys who did not care to 
be initiated by a prostitute. A boy who 
was keenly aware of girls and curious 
about them, and had done some fairly 
hot petting, was frankly waiting for 
the moment when 'he would be swept 
off his feet.' Other virgins pro tern 
were waiting for the ocassion rather 
than the right girl. 

"The 243 non-virgin boys reported 
in their questionnaires varying atti- 
tudes toward the other sex, depend- 
ing upon whether they classified as 
the Hot Bloods, who made up about 
iorty-five percent of the experienced 
young men or as the slightly more 
predominant Moderates who had sat- 
isfied their curiosity and were paus- 
ing to consider human and esthetic 
values and the possible dangers in- 
volved in full experience. 

"The Hot Bloods" actions prove 
little since they represent a male type 
— the Huntsman — that is considerably 
older than Casanova. The only dif- 
ference between their situation and 
their precursors' is that the Hot 
Bloods of the present younger gen- 
eration may aspire to 'make' girls of 
their own class. Boys who had had 
from five to fifty girls each were 
quite unaware of the need of any 
standards of sexual behavior. They 
took for granted that continence was 
an intolerable strain, or wrote with 
frank simplicity, 'have never tried it.' 
They saw no purpose in self-denial if 
they could find a girl who was willing. 
A majority of these boys came from 
middle-class homes, attended public 
schools, considered their parents hap- 
pily married, but — and this is an in- 
teresting exception — only 15 per cent 
stated that their parents judged con- 
duct from a religious point of view. 
This gave the Hot Bloods the lowest 
proportion of religious parents in the 
study, and less than half that of the 
virgins. Three-quarters of the Hot 
Bloods were not only dating but were 
hot-petting while still in high school, 
as compared with more than half of 
the uninitiated group who had not 
dated girls either in high school or 
college. More than half, furthermore, 
acquired the drinking habit during 
this period, as compared with only 
fifteen per cent of the inexperienced 
men who drank before coming to col- 
lege. Half of the Hot Bloods had had 
their first experience at sixteen or 
under, and two-thirds before they 
came to college; whereas only fifteen 
per cent of the Moderates had been 
initiated at the age of sixteen, and fif- 
ty-nine per cent before coming to col- 
lege. 

"The Hot Bloods appeared from 
their questionnaires to give little 
thought to their feminine partners' 
sensibilities and welfare. They rushed 
ahead where more conscientious or 
less self-assured men feared to tread; 
and the shorter their acquaintance 
with a girl, the more savor to their 
conquest. As many as ten per cent 
of the Hot Bloods, besides the one- 
third who had been initiated by pros- 
titutes, had known their first partner 
less than a week. One high-speed af- 
fair occurred thirty minutes after 
meeting, other within a few hours. 
Several of the Hot Bloods had gone 
the limit with girls of their own class 
whom they had met the same day or 
evening. 

No Conscience 
"While not all of the Hot Bloods 
were reckless of consequences their 
impulsive methods and hasty court- 
ships, often under the influence of 
liquor, tended to let the pregnancies 
fall where they might. One boy 'knew 
enough to protect the girl;' another 
'had sense enough to be careful.' But 
almost two-thirds of the Hot Bloods 
failed to answer the questions as to 
whether any of their girls had be- 
come pregnant. Men who answered 
practically every other question left 
this blank— perhaps from a guilty 



conscience. Two-thirds of them sig- 
nificantly quoted instances in which 
drinking had precipitated intimate af- 
fairs among their friends. The son 
of a scientist from a small town in 
New England, attending a university 
in another small town, referring to 
five abortions, wrote: 'Four of these 
cases occurred when both parties were 
intoxicated and did not take any 
precautions until too late.' He added: 
If a girl is influenced by drink, she 
s not in her right mind and should 
lot be touched.' 

"Unlike the 109 Hot Bloods of the 
questionnaire group who had strong 
drives and followed them more or 
less blindly, the 134 Moderates learn- 
ed after the first few times to think 
before leaping. More intelligent than 
their headlong brothers, and inclined 
to be analytical, they used experience 
to modify behavior, and they stopped 
to reconnoiter because they were 
shrewd-headed, discriminating or gen 
uninely romantic. The average young 
man — numbers of the Hot Bloods ex- 
cepted — feels some responsibility 
for a girl of his own social class who 
becomes pregnant through an act of 
his. While he knows less than he 
should about birth control, the ques- 
tions he asks show that he is as an- 
xious as girls to be informed. Should 
worst come to worst, he may go so 
far as to marry a girl provided he 
really cares for her, or has a strong 
sense of duty or is sensible to moral 
pressure. While most college boys 
feel less responsibility for an easy 
girl on the other side of the railroad 
tracks than for one of their own class, 
some have standards of decency where 
this type is concerned. 

"The majority of the boys of the 
study thought that if a girl became 
pregnant, decency at least required 
that the responsible boy help her 
through an abortion. Yet most of the 
boys who wrote glibly about abortion 
as a way out, showed scant knowledge 
of the dangers involved." 



Turns With a Bookworm 

By II Penseroso 

Everyone has at some time or other felt the ill effects of being exposed 
to the metrical atrocities that go under the absurdly presumptuous name of 
the poems of Longfellow. This, to our mind, is one of the strangest and most 
unfortunate phenomena in the history of American letters, because, during 
the lifetime of Longfellow there was in all the land no poet worthy the name 
save George Henry Boker, a little-known writer who lived in Philadelphia. 
Posterity has committed an unpardonable literary injustice by preserving 
the works of the former of these two men and quietly neglecting the fine, sen- 
sitive productions of the latter. 

Space will not permit us to quote here excerpts from Boker's works, but, 
should anyone care to see for himself, there is in the college library an edition 
of his sonnet sequence called Sonnets on Profane Love, and a biography en- 
titled George Henry Boker. We cannot sound the loud timbril too obstreper- 
ously in praise of both these works. 

There is also in the library a ragged-looking little book called Weem's 
Washington, which, in case you didn't know, is the earliest extant Washing- 
ton biography. 

It was written by a man named Parson Weems. Parson was a peddler 
with an imaginative cast of mind. For instance, he imagined, rightly enough, 
that a life of Washington would sell extensively on his circuit, and so pro- 
ceeded to write one. He also imagined the famous cherry-tree story which 
has gained such wide currency despite the fact that there is no foundation in 
truth for it. 

While we were home over the Christmas holiday, we found a copy of 
Peter and Wendy, by James Barrie, on our shelf where no doubt it had lain 
neglected for years, so we picked it up and read the whole thing — it takes 
only about an hour — ignoring the jibes of our sister about the dangers of 
falling into second childhood contingent upon the reading of juvenile fiction. 
And our persistence was rewarded quite by chance with a renewed apprecia- 
tion for Barrie. There were several delicious subtleties that had quite got 
past us when we read the book as a child — for instance, the essential silliness 
of your public school Englishman who is nowhei'e so well told off as in the 
characterization of the pirate Hook, who, however low he may have sunk, or 
vile become, still strides the deck debating with his soul upon the torturous 
question, "Am I showing good form?" 

And again ; "the way Wendy's mother got married was this : all the fash- 
ionable young men discovered simultaneously that they were in love with her, 
and so ran straightway to propose, with the exception of Wendy's father, 
who took a cab, and got there first." 

Of all the poets, Keats sometimes cloys, and Shelley palls upon us. There 
are times, too, when Shakespeare's mightiest works even seem to us drearily 
melodramatic — though to be sure, these come seldom — but A. E. Houseman's 
thin little book of poems, A Shropshire Lad, never fails to lift us quite out of 
ourselves. It strikes the chord of pure, uncritical joy in our heart, and we 
can do naught to resist it. 

It has, incidentally, been compared to some of the doings of Catullus. 
We've read Catullus too, and found him pretty good, but when our feet are 
lifted upon the fender, somehow it is always Houseman whom we sit and 
memorize instead of studying for examinations.

{Continued from page 1) 

one of the league's highest scorers 
iast year, who put on display his us- 
ual uncanny goal-tossing performance 
in racking up a total of 17 points. 

Ralph Billett also had a bead on 
the basket and swished through seven 
baskets, most of them of the set-shot 
variety, for an aggregate of 14 points, 
while Ed Kress and Bob Brown con- 
tributed 12 and 8 points, respectively. 

Scoring honors for the visitors were 
shared by Captain "Stew" Snodgrass, 
Stewart, and Landers, with 12 points 
each, but Snodgrass was a valiant fig- 
ure trying almost single-handedly to 
stem the avalanche of field goals. The 
visiting captain played a floor game 
that was virtually flawless. 

F. & M. drew first blood when Snod- 
grass tossed a pretty shot from the 
side, but shortly after, Valley trained 
its guns on the hoop and the score 
mounted with a speed that was 
breath-taking. This pace was main- 
tained almost throughout the game, 
I he only lull coming momentarily near 
the end of the game, when their un- 
precedented accuracy apparently be- 
gan to cloy. 

If their impressive showing in the 
initial tilt may be used as a criterion 
L. V. C.'s chances for copping the ti- 
tle this year are definitely rosy. Oi 
course, no squad in the country can 
maintain a dizzy pace like that evi- 
denced on Satur-day night, but every- 
one who witnessed that game expects 
a highly successful season and we fer- 
vently hope they are not disappoint- 
ed! Metoxen's minions will have met 
a formidable opponent in Gettysburg 
by the time this article appears and 
will take on Drexel tomorrow night 
on the Lebanon high floor, so they will 
have ample opportunity for proving 
their prowess.

The preliminary game last Satur- 
day night resulted in a 37-23 rout for 
the Franklin and Marshall yearlings. 
The young Diplomats piled up a 19-6 
lead by half time and managed to hold 
their own from then on. Hammond, 
F. & M. forward, was high scorer for 
the game with 11 points. Barney 
Bentzel, with the meager total of six, 
led the L. V. C. scorers. 

The winners gathered a 10-1 lead 
before Bentzel was able to register his 
team's first field goal. Bentzel's long 
shot and Lennon's foul brought the 
score to 11-5, but that was all the 
Flying Dutchmen could scoi'e before 
intermission. The visitors ran the 
count to 27-6 in the second half before 
Lebanon Valley could tally again. 
Coach Frock's boys then went on a 
scoring spree, but it was too late. The 
damage had been done. The score:

What They Will Think Of 

New Haven, Conn. — (ACP) — Yale University physicists expect soon to 
go into the wholesale manufacture of liquid helium as a result of a new ap- 
paratus being set up in the Sloane physics laboratory here. 

It will take one hour for the apparatus to produce one quart of liquid he- 
lium. That is 80 times better than the old method. 

Production of liquid helium in comparatively large quantities will broad- 
en the field of scientific research. 

• 

Albuquerque, N. M. — (ACP) — Delegates to the annual congress of the 
National Student Federation of America met recently on the campus of the 
University of New Mexico to discuss such problems as the relation of stu- 
dent government bodies to the administration and faculty, living conditions, 
athletics, discipline and student self-government. 

The Federation was founded in 1925 at Princeton for the purpose o! 
bringing together student officials of colleges and universities in the United 
States and Canada. Its membership includes the student councils of more than 
150 colleges. 

• 

Chicago, 111. — (ACP) — According to a Loyola University psychologist, 
Dr. Alexander A. Schneiders, the bachelor girl who tells you that she simply 
loves her work and wouldn't think of leaving for home or family, is kidding 
at least 50 per cent of the time. 

"It goes back to Freud's theory of the free will," he said. "The girl may 
have had a frustrated love affair, she may fear that the man she marries will 
dominate her or she may have half a dozen other reasons, all in her subcon- 
scious mind, and none of which she will admit. 

"The chances are that she will say she simply is not interested in men oi 
perhaps that the right man never came along. In her case no man would be 
the right man." 

And after hurling this gauntlet in the face of emancipated women, Dr. 
Schneiders leaned back, safely ensconced behind his psychology books. 

• 

New Orleans — (ACP) — The National Collegiate Athletic Association 
heard recently a prominent educator declare it is impossible to eliminate com- 
mercialism in college athletics. 

Dr. John J. Tigert, president of the University of Florida, told delegates 
to the annual N. C. A. A. convention he had concluded "prohibition of emolu- 
ments to athletes is as impossible as prohibition of the consumption of intoxi - 
cating liquors." 

• 

St. Louis, Mo. — (ACP) — College students of today are more studious 
than their prototypes of ten years ago and less given to religious skepticism, 
drinking and moral infraction, adult leaders of the National Methodist Stu- 
dent conference believe.

In the second League encounter an 
inexperienced Frosh outfit fell before 
the Juniors 47-31. Carl Dempsey did 
yeoman service for his team by rack-

11 markers, all in the second half. 

Last Tuesday's game between the 
Seniors and Juniors was a rather

ANNVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1938 



No. 18 




Dr. E. H. Stevenson 
Resumes Teaching 
Following Absence 

Condition Satisfactory 
in 2 Weeks Observation 
in Philadelpnia Hospital 

Faculty, stu- 
dents, and 
friends of Leb- 
anon Valley 
College were 
pleased on 
Monday morn- 
ing to hear the 
announce- 
ment of Presi- 
dent Lynch 
that Professor 

_ „ . E. H. Steven- 

Dr. E. H. Stevenson gQn f 

Professor of History ' . . , 

the History de- 
partment, would return on Wednes- 
day or Thursday of this week to re- 
sume his work. 

Dr. Stevenson entered the Naval 
Hospital at Philadelphia on Monday, 
January 17, to undergo observation 
for a pulmonary disturbance which 
was a survival of his last year's ill- 
ness in Europe. After two weeks of 
examination his condition has been 
declared satisfactory and good enough 
to warrant his return. 

Upon returning Dr. Stevenson will 
take up his academic duties as before 
and will reside at the home of Prof, 
and Mrs. Stokes. It had been feared 
that an operation would be necessary, 
because of a possible congestion of the 
chest which often takes place after an 
attack of pneumonia. However, fears 
along this line have proved to have 
been groundless, and Dr. Stevenson 
returns, having undergone nothing 
more serious than observation. 



Outline Series Aids 
to Improve Grades 

College outlines are a definite aid 
to ^proved grades, in the opinion of 
students using them, a poll conducted 
under the auspices of the Bureau of 
Educational Surveys, New York City, 
shows. 

T he poll embraced 3720 students in

Eight

institutions of higher learning, 
students from Lebanon Valley 



u 



e ge were included in the poll. 
% far the largest number of sta- 
rts reported grade increases from 
air to good, following the use of 
hese study helps. Another large 
Sroup reported improvements in 
ades from failure to pa&sing, and in 
ew cases, students previously re- 
lv mg f a iii n g g rac ies reported final 
ratings. 

The consensus of opinion among 
fa e st udents was that by stating the

Y lckly grasp the essentials as well

INCREASE IN TUITION FEE 
ANNOUNCED BY PRESIDENT 

Decrease in Income from Endowment 
Warrants Balancing Collegiate Budget; 
Careless Expenditures Scored 

At the opening chapel Lervice President Clyde A. Lynch addressed the 
student body on the subject of the financial problems of the individual and 
of the college. During the address he quoted figures about the financial 
status of this institution and concluded by stating that beginning next Sep- 
tember the tuition would be raised to 
$300, an increase of $25. 

His message was opened by a plea 
for less recklessness in the spending 
of money by the students, citing the 
sacrifices of parents and others as a 
sufficient reason for more economies. 
He stated that at a meeting of college 
presidents it was pointed out that re- 
traction would be necessary in the 
granting of aid to students in the 
great majority of institutions and 
that this institution is no exception. 
This was followed up by urging all 
students now receiving help who could 
get along without it to relinquish 
their aid so it could be used more ad- 
vantageously. 

By way of showing that the col- 
lege income has been decreased in 
late years, Dr. Lynch cited figures as 
to the endowment of the college, in- 
come from this endowment, and in- 
come from the church. He said that 
the book value of the endowment is 
$916,755.61, and that in the height of 
prosperity an income of about $40,-

Anniversary Head 



W. A. A. to Sponsor 

Sample Fair in Gym 

Admission Fee 
Entitles Donor 
to all Samples 

All out for the Sample Fair to be 
sponsored by the Women's Athletic 
Association in the Alumin gymnasium 
next Tuesday afternoon, February 8. 
Samples of food and various other 
articles have been secured from their 
manufacturers for this occasion. The 
tickets, being sold by any member of 
the W. A. A., cost fifteen cents and 
entitle the holder to a sample of ev- 
erything at the fair. 

One of the other attractive features 
of the affair will be a fish pond where 
anyone may toss in a line for the 
small sum of five cents. Great catches 
will be the rule rather than the ex- 
ception. A refreshment booth will be 
available for the anglers between fish- 
ings. In the evening there will be 
dancing for all those who care to en- 
gage in this sport. This Sample Fair 
has been sponsored by the W. A. A. 
under the capable supervision of Miss 
Esther Henderson, women's athletic 
director. 



High School Band 
Coming to Chapel 

Jack Schuler, a graduate of Leba- 
non Valley College Conservatory of 
Music, will bring a 46 piece band 
from Millersburg High School, where 
he is Director of Music, to give a con- 
cert before the student body in the 
chapel Friday morning, February 4th. 
They have prepared a diversified pro- 
gram, and for twenty-five minutes will 
have complete charge of the chapel 
period, their drum major announcing 
the various selections, which include 
an organ selection as well as the band 
numbers. 

Mr. Schuler has in the last few 
years built the Millersburg High 
School Band to a high degree of ef- 
ficiency, and as a result it is able to 
be compared favorably with high 
school bands in this section of the 
State. 

After leaving Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, the band will travel to Harri S; 
burg, where it will broadcast at 1 
p. m. 

Notice 

For the purpose of more efficient 
operation, it has been necessary to 
revise the staff of La Vie. Those 
persons now listed on the masthead 
will constitute the complete staff. 
Those previously listed, but not in- 
cluded now, have been dropped.

College Glee Club Prepared 
For Extensive Southern Tour 



Last minute arrangements for the 
Glee Club tour have been completed, 
a few changes having been made in 
the itinerary. The Club will leave 
the campus on Saturday afternoon, 
February 5, 1938, instead of on Fri- 
day, as formerly planned, and will 
also include Thurmont, Pa., in its iti- 
nerary Tuesday evening, February 
8th. 

The impressing picture of dignity 
and simplicity that the Glee Club as 
a group has always presented, with 
their gowns of deep rich maroon and 
white collars, will be improved on, if 
improvement is possible, by the re- 
placement of the collars by white 
stoles which have been newly pui'- 
chased. 



Professor Rutledge has been indus- 
triously rehearsing the Club for the 
past few weeks, and although the an- 
thems and other selections are smooth- 
ly and beautifully rendered, the Club 
will stop at nothing short of perfec- 
tion, and the halls of the Conserva- 
tory will probably resound up to the 
eve of the departure with individuals 
and groups polishing off their high 
A's, and perfecting their crescendos 
and diminuendos. 

The schedule will include concerts 
at Mechanicsburg, Carlisle, Shippens- 
burg, Hagerstown, Washington, and 
Baltimore. Carol Malsh will accom- 
pany the club as violin soloist.

Examinations are over and Chief 
Metoxen's basketball tea^ is resuming 
its activities with a bang. Tonight 
the Muhlenberg Mules come into Leb- 
anon determined to regain some of 
that prestige they lost with their de- 
teat at the hands of Gettysburg last 
Saturday. Until that time the Mules 
were the only undefeated team in the 
league, but that defeat dropped them 
back with the pack. This Muhlenberg 
team has been rather successful so 
far this season considering the fact 
that they have played a number of 
very good outfits. One of their de- 
feats was sustained at the hands of 
the Temple team that is supposed to 
be one of the best in the East. 

This game will be a very important 
one for both teams to win because the 
loser will probably have to win the re- 
mainder of its games to win the league 
while the winner will be in a very 
fine position to challenge Gettysburg's 
place at the top of the league. At this 
time it look? as though the Bullets 
are the outfit that must be beaten if 
any other team can hope to return 
the title to its own campus. 

This Saturday the Flying Dutchmen 
travel to Carlisle to do battle with 
Dickinson in one of the two non-league 
games scheduled. Since the Glee Club 
is also in Carlisle that night arrange- 
ments are being considered that will 
permit the vocalists to continue their 
activities at the game after the regu-

Mich igan U. Theatre 
Presents Prize Play 

"This Proud Pilgrimage," by Nor- 
man Rosten, Bureau of New Plays' 
prize scholarship winner for 1937, 
was presented last week by the Uni- 
versity of Michigan Theatre. 

Norman Rosten was one of the six 
winners of the Bureau of New Plays' 
first contest open to college students 
and recent graduates, receiving a 
$1250 scholarship which took him to 
the University of Michigan. "This 
Proud Pilgrimage" is his first play to 
be written under the scholarship. 

Rosten has forged an original poetic 
drama around Chicago's ill-famed 
Haymarket Riot of 1886. A bomb was 
thrown into a peaceful mass meeting 
agitating for an 8-hour day. In an 
hysteria of fear seven innocent men 
were tried and hanged. One speaker 
could have escaped. Believing his ob- 
vious innocence could save others, he 
gave himself up. He was hanged. 

This episode is the dramatic focus 
of the play. Behind it Rosten has 
chronicled the epic opening of Amer- 
ica, the building of railroads and fac- 
tories, the change in labor-capital re- 
lations from the pioneering to the in- 
dustrial era, the course of people 
changing. In the Michigan production 
scenes flow from one area of the stage 
to another, highlighting the incidents 
against an ever-clarifying suggestion 
of a gallows which at last assumes its 
own form.

The United States, although posses- 
sing an extensive and open eoast line, 
is well able to defend hersejf from for- 
eign aggression. And with the latest 
S800,000,000 addition to the naval 
budget for the construction of new 
ships, a navy second to none should 
be the result. With such a situation 
on hand Roosevelt's theory of a navy 
as a force for peace should be tested 
thoroughly. However, there are dis- 
turbing elements in the new program, 
even if it is a potential aid to peace. 

There is a powerful opinion abroad 
that President Franklin Roosevelt's 
naval program is part of a tacit pact 
with Great Britain, for the combined 
fleets of the United States and Brit- 
ain could sweep any possible combin- 
ation of fleets from the high seas. 
This is the unfortunate result of the 
tendency of officials of foreign na- 
tions to interpret the expressions of 
the United States government and de- 
fine them from their own viewpoint, 
not as they should be defined. 

Aside from the fact that secret 
pacts are impossible under the Amer 
ican form of government, such i 
meaning should not be read into th* 
present program, for it was precise 
ly that sort of thing that lined Eu- 
(Continwed on Page 4, Column 4) 




is that indefinable quantity 

that every newspaper, whether met 
ropolitan or college must strive to 
build in order to be a success. Per- 
haps the college paper feels a great- 
er degree of responsibility in this 
matter than does any other. On many 
campuses there exists the tendency 
for the student body to criticize de- 
structively the college paper, to treat 
it lightly, or to compare it unjustly 
with professional newspapers. The 
onus of the responsibility for this at- 
titude can be placed directly at the 
door of the college editors themselves. 
It may be traced to the fact that the 
student body does not know what the 
college paper is trying to accomplish, 
what proDiems coniront it, and whai 
obstacles it must meet" and overcome. 
And few college editors take the 
trouble to acquaint them! 

it has been, and is, the opinion ot 
the euitors oi LA VIE that tms papei 
has enjoyed a particularly large snare 
oi the coniidence of tne student body. 
We smcereiy wish it to remain so. To 
this end we are striving to adjust our 
attituue and policies to meet chang- 
ing uemanus on the part of the reau- 
ers. And we are particularly anxious 
to do all m our power to break down 
any barriers or misunderstandings 
that may exist between the paper ariu 
stuuents or faculty. 

We should like the student body to 
feel that LA VlrJ is their newspaper, 
and that constructive criticism anu 
suggestions are solicited. We great- 
ly appreciate any suggestions trom in- 
divmuais and organizations of what 
to do to better the college paper 

We should like to be a central spot 
on campus for constructive help to 
students, particularly new students. 
We want to extend our cooperation to 
clubs and organizations for the pur- 
pose of putting over their plans and 

Unfortunately, some material that 
a college paper prints will antagonize 
individuals. But we do not assume a 
"hardboiled" or cynical attitude. We 
are not afraid to print corrections, 
and if we have falsely reported any 
circumstance or situation, we shall be 
glad to make proper amends. 

With a better and more complete 
understanding between students and 
the paper, LA VIE hopes to build a 
higher degree of "reader acceptance."

President Theodore Roosevelt said 
that a large navy was the best guar 
antee of peace for the United States 
That is, if the navy is used for de 
fense purposes only. A coward and 
bully never attacks anyone he believes 
will eventually conquer and kill him 



BEYOND^C&MPUS 



Embattled coeds at the University 
of Alabama are hurling the charge of 
stinginess at the men on the campus. 

They think they have good reason, 
since they recently learned that the 
university supply store, where fooa 
and drinks are sold, has one of its big- 
gest crowds of the day immediately 
alter 10:45 p. m., when the men must 
return their dates to dormitories or 
sorority houses. 

That means but one thing to them. 
Their fond young Romeos are simply 
waiting to buy refreshments untu 
chey have only one mouth, instead oi 
two, to feed. 

The boys insLt that they aren't 
trying to save money on the girls, 
out that they like a late-evening 
onack; and "tnere are some dishes a 
gentleman can't eat gracefully in the 
presence of a lady." 

Add campus fads: At Macalester 
College in bt. l^aui, coeds have takeij 
up wearing a ainerent color ol sweat- 
er each aay in tne week. 

lVionaays the sweaters — and campu& 
— are Diue, with every shade iron, 
aqua to navy seen aoout tne hails

day. 

Friday, however, rules are relaxed 
and the girls can dress up if they 
choose. 

* * * * 
The ears of the editorial staff of the 
Harvard Crimson are bright red. 

Reading in the newspapers that 
girls at Jackson said they'd like to be 
known as "Tufts coeds," the editor ol 
the Harvard Crimson sent a reporter 
and a cameraman to get a couple of 
similar statements from the Radcliffe 
girls. He thought it would be as easy 
as that. 

But back came the photographer 
with no pictures, and the reporter, 
with two sizzling statements. "Are 
you mad?" one coed said, "We prefer 
our splendid isolation." 

And the editor of the Radcliffe 
News said she might, be quoted as 
laughing. 

The astute Harvard editor cast 
aside his journalistic ethics to save 
the pride of the rest of the Harvard 
men, and cooked up a phoney to the 
effect that the Radcliffe girls were 
cuh-razy to become Harvard coeds.

lar program planned for them. The 
Dickinsonians have had their ups and 
downs this season, so it is a little hard 
to predict the outcome of the game, 
but Lebanon Valley has a good chance 
of winning if they come anywhere 
near to playing the game of which 
they have demonstrated they are cap- 
able. 

One of the features of the season 
will be staged next Wednesday when 
the Red and White of Albright is met 
in the Hershey Sports arena as a part 
of a double-header. The first game 
will be between Manhattan and St. 
Thomas. The Manhattan squad has 
met with rather mediocre success so 
far, but they have played against 
some of the best outfits in the coun- 
try. The Tommies have been doing 
very well right along and will prob- 
ably enter the game as favorites. 

The second game will see the old 
Albright-Lebanon Valley rivalry re- 
sumed. Last year each team managed 
to win on the other's floor, thereby 
upsetting the general theory that the 
home team is at an advantage. This 
game will be staged on a floor new to 
both fives, so the result is quite unpre- 
dictable. Arrangements have been 
made that will permit Lebanon Val 
ley students to be admitted to the 
game on their Athletic cards. An iden 
tifier will be on duty at the south en- 
trance and the students will sit on 
temporary seats on the west end right 
on the floor. 

A second non-league game has been 
added to the slate. The Bucknell Bi- 
sons will be met in Lewisburg on 
March 9 in what will be the season's 
finale for the Blue and White five. 
Last winter the Metoxenmen knocked 
off the Lewisburgers twice, once in 
Harrisburg and once in the up-river 
town. The Bucknellians have had a 
hard job getting started this winter, 
but it is too early to say they will not 
be a tough foe. 

Here are the points scored by the 
players in the first three games: Frey 
—34, Billett— 30, Artz— 27, Kress— 
26, Brown — 15, Rozman — 13, and 
Walk — 1. Foul shooting honors go to 
Raymie Frey since he has netted no 
less than six of the seven that he 
tried. The team as a whole has put in 
18 out of 33, respectable percentage. 
The boys have committeed the sum to- 
tal of 45 fouls, Brown and Kress lead- 
ing with ten apiece. 



Seniors Elect 
Capka President 



At a formal meeting of the Senior 
Class held Tuesday, February 1, 
Adolph Capka was elected second sem- 
ester president. This is the second 
time that Capka has been elected to 
act in this capacity. 

As part of the general election, Lu- 
cille Maberry was chosen as vice-pres- 
ident and Catherine Mills as secre- 
tary. In accordance with an unwrit- 
ten rule, Dean Gasteiger was retain- 
ed as treasurer for the remainder of 
the year. 

It was definitely agreed by mem- 
bers present, that a Senior ball would 
be held, and the question of pro- 
grams, invitations, and caps and 
gowns was discussed. Final action 
upon these matters, however, was de- 
ferred to a later date. 



What They Say 

Question — Should a college pa- 
per run a scandal column? 

Irwin Schoen, Sophomore: Scanda: 
columns are 0. K. A paper needs 
something to make people read it, but 
I don't like the column in La Vie. 

Edna Rutherford, Freshman: j 
like scandal columns, but those pub- 
lished in La Vie should be improved. 

Ernestine Jagnesak, Senior: \ 
think scandal columns are just duckie. 

Paul Myers, Sophomore: All right 
if it doesn't get too dirty. 

Calvin Spitler, Senior: It is in- 
teresting and everybody likes it. 
Campus politics should be included in 
it. 

Jean Meyer, Sophomore: The scan- 
dal column is the only thing worth 
reading in the paper. 

Jane Ehrhart, Freshmen: Archie's 
column is the first thing most students 
look for in La Vie. I heartly approve 
of scandal columns or the interest 
they add to a paper. 

Virginia Niessner, Junior: Some 
type of scandal column seems a neces- 
sary part of a college paper, but the 
writer must be considerate of other 
people's feelings in writing it. 

Raymond Smith, Junior: A little 
gossip doesn't hurt. 

Jeannette Kolbach, Freshman: La 
Vie's scandal column adds spice to 
the paper, but lacks variety and pep. 

Dorothy Long, Sophomore: Yeh, 
sure, scandal columns are fun. They 
make life interesting. 

John Groff, Senior: It hasn't af- 
fected us day student's much, but it 
is all in fun and you have something 
in the paper.

for mer Brown Prep boys, gave high 
coring honors for the evening to him 
with a total of 22 markers. The other 
biff ff 1111 * or the winners was Chern 
Jith 14 points. The high scorer for 
the Flying Dutchmen was Captain 
Ualph Billett with 16. 

Lebanon Valley went out in front 
in the first minute of play when Eddie 
Kress converted a foul try, but 
Keehn soon erased this lead by sink 
ing four straight two-pointers from 
the center of the court. After ten min 
utes of the game the homesters had 
increased their lead to 17-8, but then 
Brown, Kress, and Billett put on a 
rally and reduced the margin to 25-23 
by half time. 

Almost immediately after the quin- 
tets returned from their mid-game re- 
spite Raymie Frey tied up the game 
at 25-25. Those classy Ursinus sophs 
did not let the tie remain very long 
but each sank a two-pointer to put 
their team out in front. The two 
outfits stayed close together, but Ur 
sinus was behind for the next ten min 
utes. Kress brought the Blue and 
White up even again with ten minutes 
to play, but then the Bears went on 
a scoring spree and never were head 
ed after that. When the count read 
43-35 Rozman and Billett registered 
fields goals to put the Annvjlle boys 
within striking distance, but the long 
range snipers kept on the job and

Wide Program 
Planned in 
Womens Sport 

The women of Lebanon Valley are 
showing great interest in basketball 
this season as shown by the fact that 
approximately fifty or sixty reported 
a t practice. Several class teams have 
been organized to compete in inter- 
ns games during this month. It was 
necessary to select class teams first, 
si nce four class teams from Cedar 
Crest College are planning to come 
to Annville on February 28 to play 
w ith our teams. After these games 
dormitory and day students will en 
§ a ge in a tournament. The best play- 
* rs will comprise the first and second 
honor teams," which will compete 
Vlt h other colleges. Jean Houck, 
s Ports leader for basketball, has ar- 
J ar>ged games with outsiders; Mora- 
y ian College and Albright College are 
° Ur only opponents up until this time. 
The schedule for basketball prac- 
1Ce is as follows: Monday, Tuesday,

Grid Schedule 
Announced 
For 1938 

Four new opponents are listed or 
the 1938 Lebanon Valley football 
schedule which has just been complet 
ed. Moravian College, of Bethlehem, 
and Hartwick College, of Oneonta, 
New York, have never appeared on 
the Blue and White gridiron slate be- 
fore, but Franklin and Marshall and 
Susquehanna have been rescheduled 
after a lapse of several years. The 
four replaced teams are UpLala, 
Muhlenberg, Delaware and Bucknell. 

As has been customary in the past 
most of the games will be played 
away from home. The only games list- 
ed for the Annville gridiron are the 
game with Hartwick on October 15 
and the Homecoming Day encounter 
with St. Joseph's on October 22. The 
traditional Albright-Lebanon Valley 
rivalry will be resumed on November 
12 at Reading. The re-establishment 
of football relations with Franklin and 
Marshall is the outstanding feature 
of the fall program. 

The 1938 edition of the "Flying 
Dutchmen" should be able to give a 
good account of themselves. They 
have selected as their leader a clever 
offensive and defensive wingman from 
Lemoyne, Pa., Robert Brown. He has 
earned for himself, by virtue of his 
cine spirit and natural ability, the re 
putation of being one of the best ends 
in small college circles and should be 
outstanding captain. 



Increase in Tuition Fee 
Announced by President 

(Continued from page 1) 

000 was realized from this, but that 
for the past several years the officials 
have not been counting on more than 
from fifteen to twenty thousand dol- 
lars from this source. The amount re- 
ceived from the church had been re- 
duced even more greatly. This reduc- 
ed income has been compensated for 
in part by cutting the faculty salar- 
ies five per cent on two occasions, but 
the present drain on the treasury 
could not be continued so it will be 
necessary to raise the tuition to $300 
for next year. 

At this time he also announced that 
in 1941 a drive will be started to raise 
money for a new Science building or 
Gymnasium or both. Most of the 
money is expected to come from 
alumni. 



College Begins 
Publication of 
Alumni Periodical 

The Lebanon Valley College Alumni 
Association is a living, active organ- 
ization. Since a college cannot exist 
without its alumni the Executive 
Committee of Lebanon Valley, keep- 
ing in mind the necessity of binding 
the gradutes to the institution, de- 
cided to give the alumni a periodic 
publication that is to be distinctly 
their own. 

The Lebanon Valley Alumni News, 
the periodical published for this pur- 
pose, made its debut last month. The 
pamphlet, which was sent to all 
alumni, is expected to be published 
quarterly. 

The following are some of the in- 
teresting items to be found in the first 



issue of Lebanon Valley Alumni 
News: 

Chester A. Stineman, '37, was 
married recently to Miss Pauline 
Slough, Harrisburg. Mr. and Mrs. 
Stineman now reside in Somerset, 
Penna., where Mr. Stineman is super- 
visor of instrumental music in the 
public schools. 

Lucille Engle, '33, of Hummels- 
;own was married to Walter Otto of 
Lemoyne, Pa., D|Dcember 23, 1937. 
The ceremony was performed by Rev. 
George Hallman, '17, assisted by Rev. 
D. LeRoy Fegley, '27. 

The announcement was made re- 
cently of the engagement of Irene 
Miller '29, and Arba Disney, '29. 
Miss Miller is a teacher in the Ann- 
ville High School and Mr. Disney is 
the proprietor of a men's shop in Pal- 
myra. 

The announcement was made dur- 
ing the Christmas holidays of the en- 
gagement of Helen Risser to Boyd 
Sponaugle, '36. Mr. Sponaugle is di- 
rector of athletics and teacher of

A very inspiring deputation was 
conducted in the Lemoyne United 
Brethren Church last Sunday evening 
by the Life Work Recruits. Rev. 
Paul E. Cooper, a graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College, is minister 
of the church. The speaker of the 
evening was Paul Horn, who had as 
his subject "Confronted by Christ." 
Audrie Fox led during the Christian 
Endeavor service. The special music 
for the services was rendered by Mil- 
dred Gardner, vocalist, and John 
Zettlemoyer, violinist. They were both 
accompanied by Amy Meinhardt. 

Another Life Work Recruit deputa- 
tion was conducted at the Mount 
Aetna United Brethren Church, of 
which Lloyd Beamesderfer, student of

Even in losing the Flying Dutch-

and is the west's first contribution to 
national dancing. In the past the 
dances have either come out of the 
south — like the Charleston and the 
Big Apple — or have come out of Har- 
lem. 

But out in the west the collegians 
are really swinging it in the craziest 
dance to be seen in years. Even its 
most ardent devotees admit there is 
no sense to it and that it out-apples 
the Big Apple. But they insist that 
it is far more fun to dance the Col- 
lege Swing than any dance which has 
come along in years. 

The dance has become so strong 
that the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia Pi Kappa Alpha chapter turned 
its semi-annual rush party into a Col- 
lege Swing party and it was a sensa- 
tion on the campus. 

The dance is a collection of kid- 
ding steps, which LeRoy Prinz, Para- 
mount dance director, saw during a 
tour of western colleges and moulded 
into a set routine. The dance will 
come to the screen in "College Swing," 
Paramount's annual college picture, 
with Betty Grable and Jackie Coogan 
as the terpsichorean experts.

L V. Student Body 
Aids Peace Drive 

The students of Lebanon Valley 
College have entered the collegiate 
fight against war and are now waving 
the banners of peace. The initial step 
in the peace program was taken dui*- 
ing the chapel period of Wednesday, 
February 2. 

The subject of the student's attitude 
;oward pacifist movements was intro- 
luced by Dean A. H. M. Stonecipher. 
The principal part of the meeting, 
lowever, was devoted to the signing 
)f a petition sponsored by the Veter- 
ins of Foreign Wars. There was a fa- 

orable response by the student body 

o the petition. The students pledg- 
;d to uphold the ideas and ideals oi

dequate defense.

rope into two opposing camps and 
brought on the World War. 

Then the question arises as to how 
far should the government protect 
nationals, property abroad, and busi- 
ness interests. With a strong navy it 
is possible to protect to the uttermost, 
and even "over-protect." The posses- 
sion of a strong right arm tempts one 
to use it whenever possible, and the 
position of a neutral country in an in- 
ternational imbroglio is exceedingly 
delicate, work oftentimes not for a 
brawny sailor, but for a brainy diplo- 
mat. 

Perhaps the bigger and better navy 
program is not such a decisive step 
anyway. At most, it only hastens a 
bit the gravitation toward war. At 
any rate, Rear Admiral Leahy, in a 
hearing before the House Naval Af- 
fairs Committee, said that the Unit- 
ed States was nearer war now than at 
any time since the World War. The 
most that the American people can 
say is, "We hope the government 
knows what it is doing." And they 
may be disappointed in that.

Above — Bud Schoen and Henry 
Kates, our newest team of song- 
writers. Below — Opus No. 1. 



Irwin Schoen, sophomore at Leba- 
non Valley College, is a member of 
one of the latest developed popular 
song-writing teams in the country. 
His partner in the business of writing 
and developing hit tunes is Henry 
Kates, of Philadelphia. Kates was a 
Temple student and is in the teach- 
ing profession in Philadelphia. Schoen 
is the manager in charge of selling 
the tunes originated by the team to 
publishers, and his experiences along 
the rocky road to success have been 
and are many and varied. 

A HARD GAME 

Approximately four months were 
spent establishing contacts, a vital ne- 
cessity in any profession but especial- 
ly so in the song writing "game." 
Piano players had to be hired in or- 
der that auditions could be arrang- 
ed for publishers. Personal inter- 
views were obtained with several of 
the leading orchestra leaders in New 
York. Strategem frequently was re- 
sorted to to obtain the desired inter- 
view, Shep Fields being the victim of 
one such device. Out of five songs 
submitted to him for judgment, Mar- 
ried by the Moon received the most 
favorable comment, and it was decid- 
ed to concentrate on this one song 
in order to have the best start with 
a not too diversified attack. A de- 
mand had to be created for the song 
before publishers would consent to 
risk a printed edition of it, and a de- 
mand was particularly hard to create 
since there is so much competition. 
A "PLUGGER" FOUND 

Although by this time the outlook 
was somewhat discouraging, neverthe- 
less contacts with orchestra leaders 
were arranged by several contact men,

Heart Sister Traditions 
Again Observed by 
y. W. C A. 

The Y. W. C. A. is following Leba- 
non Valley College tradition in spon- 
soring Heart Sister Week for the 
girls of the campus. In each dormi- 
tory names have been drawn so that 
every girl has her secret Heart Sister. 
The week will begin Sunday, Feb- 
ruary 13 and will end Sunday, Feb- 
ruary 20, during which time small 
gifts are given and small favors done 
by the girls for their "sisters of the 
week." 

As the girls try to do at least one 
daily kindness for each other through- 
out the week, this period promotes a 
better feeling of good-will and har- 
mony among the members of the dor- 
mitories. 

The high-lights of Heart Sister 
Week are Valentine's Day and the 
teas which will be held in the different 
dormitories on Sunday, the twentieth. 



L.V. Woman Debaters 

Meet Gettysburg Team; 

N. L R. B. Discussed 

Rebuttals Enlivened by 
Barrage of Mud-Slinging; 
Unusually Large Audience 

The first women's debate of the 
season was held in Delphian Hall on 
Monday night between Lebanon Val- 
ley's negative and the affirmative 
team from Gettysburg College. L. V. 
C. was represented by Betty Bender 
and Jane Ehrhart, while Betty Stitt 
and Elizabeth Lutz spoke for Gettys- 
burg. 

The current question concerns the 
advisability of the N. L. R. B. being 
given authority to enforce arbitration 
of industrial disputes. The affirmative 
team built its case around two main 
points, first, that there is need for 
such control, and second, that the 
National Labor Relations Board is 
the proper body to be invested with 
this additional power. However, the 
affirmative debaters weakened their 
case somewhat by suggesting that a 
new board of nine members be ap- 
pointed to replace the present three 
man board, thereby implying that the 
present system was inadequate. Con- 
siderable time was also taken up in 
relating and explaining the history 
of the board and its present powers. 

The negative opposed this conten- 
tion on the grounds that it was un- 
necessary, impractical, unfair, and un- 
wise. They contended that labor, 
capital, and public opinion were 
against compulsory arbitration; that 
it could not be adequately enforced; 
that the Board is biased, as shown by 
its pro-C. I. O. decisions; and that it 
is incompetent. 

A lively rebuttal followed the main 
speeches, in which both sides indulged 
in what is known in politics as "mud- 
slinging. Although the debate was 
a non-decision affair, the side present- 
ing the stronger case was plainly in- 
dicated in the minds of the people 
making the audience. 

The audience was quite large, as 
far as audiences go in Lebanon Val- 
ley debates, and if the attendance is 
to be taken as an index, the interest 
shown by students in contemporary 
problems is more than languid.

vatory of Music, will give a recital on 
Monday, February 14th, at 8:15 in 
Engle Hall. 

Prof. House joined the music fac 
ulty of Lebanon Valley College thi 
year with a rich background of oper 
atic, oratorio, and teaching experienc, 
behind him. He has studied unde. 
some of the best teachers both here 
and abroad, including Dr. Max Rein 
hardt, Frank LaForge and Adelaide 
Gescheidt. He has sung the princi- 
pal tenor roles with the Philadelphia 
Civic Opera Company, was opera di- 
rector at Chautauqua, N. Y., has madt 
concert and oratorio appearances with 
leading festival and symphony orches- 
tras of the United States and Can- 
ada, and has broadcast considerably 
over the National Broadcasting net- 
work. In addition he has conductea 
vocal master classes at Brenau Col- 
lege, Gainesville, Ga., and Lander Col- 
lege, Greenville, S. C, and more re- 
cently taught privately in a New 
York studio. Prof. Hoube holds an 
honorary degree of Master of Music 
from Valparaiso University, conferrea 
in 1924. 

Monday evening's program, which 
is the second faculty recital of the 
year, will open with the aria, "Waft 
Her, Angels," from Handel's oratorio, 
"Jeptha." From the song cycle, "The 
Persian Garden," by Liza Lehman, 
Prof. House has chosen "Ah, Moon of 
My Delight" as his next offering. Then 
follows a group of songs by the be-

L.V. C. Defeats 
D'son Devils 
by 69-55 Count 

Playing their first non-league game 
of the season, Chief Metoxen's basket- 
eers staged a rousing second half 
rally to down a small but scrappy 
Dickinson five by a 69-55 count. The 
Lebanon Valley team played rather 
sluggishly in the first half and were 
behind at the intermission 33-31. The 
closing half saw that outfit snap out 
of the doldrums and soundly trounce 
the Red Devils. 

Captain Billett, Frey and Artz co- 
operated to give the Blue and White 
a 7-1 lead in quick order, but Captain 
Doll and B. Hendrickson led the Car- 
lisle team on a scoring spree that put 
them ahead 17-13 after ten minutes 
of play. The Annville quintet seem- 
ed content to stay within striking dis-

Recruits Meet at 
President's Home 

Last Monday evening the Life 
Work Recruits were received at the 
home of Dr. and Mrs. C. A. Lynch. 

An important business meeting was 
held as a preliminary to the social 
affair. This meeting was opened with 
devotions directed by Paul Slonaker. 
Then Paul Horn, chairman of the dep- 
utation work, gave an encouraging re- 
port on the progress and plans of past 
and future deputations. In his report 
he announced that this coming Sun- 
day, which is Education Day in many 
of the United Brethren churches, 
there will be eight deputations sent 
out by the Life Work Recruits. Due 
to the Glee Club's 1938 Tour at this 
time it is rather difficult for Mr. 
Horn to secure sufficient vocal talent. 
But he appreciates the effort and co- 
operation of those who have aided in 
past deputations and also those who 
will assist in the future deputations. 
Howard Peffley, chairman of the Y. 
M. C. A. World Fellowship Move- 
ment, urged the enlistment of the 
Life Work Recruits in this enterprise. 
Dr. Lynch then extended a welcome 
to the Recruits and urged them to 
feel free to call upon him for aid. In 
closing Dr. Lynch thanked the Life 
Work Recruits for all the time and 
energy they gave to the advancement

Initial Men's Debate 
Announced For Feb. 17 

The men's debating teams under 
the tutelage of Dr. E. H. Stevenson 
have prepared an extensive schedule 
of debates with leading eastern col- 
leges. The first of the series is to 
be held at home on Thursday, Feb- 
ruary 17, when Lebanon Valley's af- 
firmative team will stack up against 
the Elizabethtown College negative 
combination. On the same date tha 
negative and affirmative teams of the 
respective colleges will meet at Eli- 
zabethtown. 

Thereafter the arfimative team will 
debate at home for six more debates, 
and then will set out on March 8 for 
a tour of Washington, D. C, Dela- 
ware, and Maryland. The negative 
team will open its schedule on the 
campus with Delaware and then will 
meet three more colleges before leav- 
ing on their northern tour, which 
will take them as far as New York. 
Both teams plan to return by mid- 
March. 

The affirmative team is composed 
of Clifford Barnhart, Carl Ehrhart, 
and Calvin Spitler. On the negative 
side of the question are Curvin Dell- 
inger, Raymond Smith, Paul Myers, 
and Marlin Espenshade. They will 
debate the question: "Resolved, that

The time is not within our knowl- 
edge when we have before seen such 
an imposing honor roll as that fea 
tured below. A total of forty-one 
students represents approximately ten 
per cent of the student body. This i 
an excellent average for any school, 
and certainly deserves a word of com- 
ment. 

There are, however, a few things 
we can't fathom in the matter of these 
averages. 

Chiefly*, we can't see why a defin- 
ite mark has to be given in Physical 
Education. The time was when the 
student of "gym" received a designa- 
tion of "Satisfactory" or "Unsatis- 
factory" depending upon how fre- 
quently he had managed to answer 
roll call or how intimate he had been 
with the assistant. Now he receives 
a mark, in many cases RELATIVELY 
low. We do not believe that partici- 
pation in two hours of sports a week

The men at Kent State University 
had better put up a "stiff-shirt' 
front at campus social events or they 
won't have any Kent coeds for danc- 
ing partners. 

An indignant coed released he; 1 
pent-up feelings on the subject in a 
letter to the campus newspaper. In 
it she protested against men students 
attired in "checked shirts and leath- 
er jerkins" at dances. 

Said she: 

"We give a dance, everything is 
lovely, then what? Most of the men 
turn up looking as out of place as 
cin forks at a banquet."

"Get a picture of night life at col- 
lege," barked the professor to his 
evening journalism class at Baldwin 
Wallace College. 

Results showed that the professor 
had reckoned without their canny 
knowledge of college night life. 

More than one shot, said the pro- 
fessor, was hurriedly destroyed in the 
developer when the target became, 
too apparent. One young man, wear- 
ing only a smile as he polished his 
ceeth, nearly swallowed a tooth 
brush when the flash lamp blazed 
suddenly. 

The assignment was designed to 
give students a realistic touch of 
newspaper life.

Charlie McCarthy, the 2 by 4

to a questionnaire answered by 100 
seniors. 

Other qualifications of the ideal 
man indicated by students were: A 
sense of humor, wealth and intelli- 
gence. 

More than one-third of the class 
chose President Roosevelt as the 
greatest living man and Mrs. Elea- 
nor Roosevelt as the greatest living 
woman. Prof. Albert Einstein took 
second place, and Margaret Sanger 
and Mme. Chiang Kai-Shek also had 
high scores.

included in this group all those who 
freely gave of their time to the ad- 
vancement of the deputation work, i*e- 
gardless of their being a member of 
the organization or not. 

A discussion was started under the 
general direction of Dr. Lynch. The 
purpose of this discussion was to talk 
over various problems that might be 
facing the members of the organiza- 
tion. 

The main inspiration of the social 
phase was a Bible "bee." After this 
testing of the mind the group relaxed 
on table games. Refreshments were

•Editors Note— No pun intended. 



A student at Adrian College has earned his way through school by land- 
scaping the college campus. Coming to Adrian after financial stress forced 
him to forego his educational pursuits at the University of Illinois, he ap- 
proached the college authorities and proposed that he landscape the entire 
campus, which was in a bad state of neglect, in lieu of his tuition. 

Asked whether they preferred men or women bosses, 520 women studied 
by a Colgate University psychologist, said they preferred men because wo- 
men bosses let personal things creep into work, get angry over errors, are, 
jealous, are efficiency slaves, find fault, and pay too much attention to de- 
tails. 

Students at Oklahoma A. and M. College can walk on dry steamlined 
sidewalks even on icy, slippery days. When college engineers designed the 
underground system of laying steam heating lines between buildings they 
were placed underneath some of the main interconnecting sidewalks. The 
steam pipes keep ice or wet spots from collecting on the walks. 

Your hometown is no longer "podunk," but more probably a "crack in 
the track." A teacher in the University of Nebraska English department 
has made a study of the synonyms for "Podunk." They include Tonnerville, 
Picolo Town, Spunkyville, Pruneville, Flag Station, Alfalfa Center, Sage- 
brush Center, Pumpkin Center and Shunk Center. 

The pride of would-be Harvard Lotharios has been greatly piqued with 
the news from New York that in the future they must sign application 
blanks before being allowed to date chorines of a Broadway musical show t 
for the evening. I 

A bill which would ban "round dances" including the "big apple" and 
"truckin' " at Mississippi schools of higher learning has students at the; 
University of Mississippi all riled up. Comment from rank and file students 
as well as student-body leaders heaped denunciation upon the bill. 

Seven-months-old Stephen S. Fassett, of Needham, Mass., is one of the 
youngest collegians on record. Steve has a four year scholarship waiting! 
for him when he can use it. The scholarship was offered by the class of 1912: 
for the benefit of the first grandson born to a member of the class. 

Plans to operate typical Iowa farms are under way at Iowa State Col- 
lege. Each of the farms will be under the supervision of a local county com- 
missioner. An "agricultural foundation" gift of an anonymous donor, was 
established for the "improvement of Iowa agriculture." 



including Pat Weaver of Young and 
Rubican Advertising, Inc. and New 
York Assemblyman Robert F. Wag 
ner, Jr. An orchestration of the song 
was made, another important step in 
creating demand. A bit of cold water 
was thrown on the enterprise at this 
time by the orchestra leader, Horace 
Heidt, who advised Schoen to quit the 
song-writing field and take up the car- 
eer for which he had been planning. 
He stated that the field was a closed 
circle, which had taken him many 
years to crack, and which was not at 
all safe even after it had been enter- 
ed. Other orchestra leaders took the 
tame viewpoint, but at last Zinn Ar- 
thur consented to play it, both locally 
and on the air. 

JENTES COMES IN 
Various finishers now went through 
the song, polishing up the less smooth 
parts and making slight changes for 
the better. A contract was signed 
with the Melody Music Company, a 
comparatively new concern, which had 
just published "Now Will You Be 
Good?" giving them the right to pub- 
lish the song, "Married by the Moon." 
This contract was signed near the be- 
ginning of December, after a long pe- 
riod of seemingly futile and some- 
times discouraging work. At this 
point Harry Jentes entered the pic- 
ture to collaborate in obtaining sug- 
gestions from some of the well-known 
stars of New York in making the song 
more smooth. 

Professional copies were received 
at the end of January, and it was 
predicted by critics of New York that 
"Married by the Moon" would become 
a hit tune in a short while. 

A new orchestration was made by 
another musician, with Arthur serv- 
ing the right to be the first to intro- 
duce the song to the radio audience. 
Now it is a matter of time until the 
song has built up a demand, not only 
for itself but for others from the same 
team. Songs can be turned out as 
fast as they can be published, that is, 
if the public demand keeps up. 
Schoen and his mates have several 
songs on hand and are expecting to 
publish them in the future, near or 
distant. 



Work Recruits sent three deputations 
to churches in the East Pennsyl Va 
nia and Pennsylvania Conferences f 
the Church of the United Brethren 
in Christ. 

A delegation was sent to the Bait- 
zell United Brethren Church f 
Pottstown, Pa., Rev. Marvin k 
Schell, pastor. Carl Ehrhart was the 
speaker at this service. He was ably 
assisted by Martha Jane Koontz, wh 
acted in the capacity as chairman f 
the group. The special music Was 
presented by Lucie Cook, vocalist 
and Esther Wise, pianist. 

A second group was received at the 
New Cumberland Community Church 
of New Cumberland. Rev. D. Floyd 
Mowrey is the pastor. Jane Ehrhart 
was the special Christian Endeavof 
speaker. In the evening worship ser> 
vice Miss Ehrhart officiated, while 
Lloyd Beamesderfer delivered the 
message. Dennis Geesey, trombonist, 
and Ruth Hershey, pianist, rendered 
the special music. 

The same evening another group 
brought to a close the Education Day 
services at the Carlisle United Breth- 
ren Church of Carlisle, Pa. The ev- 
ening before the Glee Club had ren- 
dered a concert in the same church. 
The minister of the congregation is 
Dr. I. S. Ernst, a graduate of Leba- 
non Valley College, whose daughter 
is at present a member of the Fresh- 
man class. Ethel Wilt presented at 
the Christian Endeavor meeting the 
history of Christian Endeavor. The 
speaker of the evening was John 
Ness, who was assisted by Howard 
Peffley. The special music was given 
by John Zettlemoyer, violinist, and 
Dorothy Yeakel, pianist.

Strong Close Wins 
League Game 51-40 

gy staging a stirring second half 
, a lly the Lebanon Valley basketball 
' bdued the Albright Lions in the 
u e rshey Sports Arena by a 51-40 

un t. The winners played rather 
listlessly in the first half, but after 
the intermission they seemed like a 
neW outfit and literally played rings 
a round the Red and White quintet. 
p a y m je Frey, tall center, led the at- 
taC k with 18 points. 

Field goals by Schwartz and Knox 

u t the Reading team off to a flying 
start. The Dutchmen reduced this 
lead to one point on Frey's bucket 
a nd Billett's foul. Schwartz racked 
u p another two-pointer for Albright 
and Kress did likewise for his team. 
rp n e score was evened up at 7-7 by 
Doremus' charity toss and Billett's 
field goal. Hydock and Doremus re- 
turned the Hinomen to the lead by 
allying two-pointers. Lebanon Valley 
we nt into the van for the first time 
on two fouls by Kress, one by Billett, 
and a field goal by Rozman, the score 
then being 12-11. 

Oslislo, Comba, and Schwartz com- 
bined to put the Reading boys out in 
front 17-12, but then Frey came 
through with another neat field goal. 
A bucket by Knox and a foul by Bil- 
lett brought the score to 19-15, Al- 
bright leading. Thorpe then stretched 
this advantage to seven points with 
a field goal and a foul. At this junc- 
ture the Lebanon members of the 
Blue and White five shone, Frey tal- 
lying, then Artz, then Frey twice 
more, all two-pointers, to restore 
their team to the lead, 23-22. To close 
the initial half Doremus netted two 
buckets and Billett converted a foul. 
Thus the score read Albright 24, 
Lebanon Valley 26 at intermission. 

Upon returning to the floor Billett, 
Artz, and Billett tallied in quick suc- 
cession. McCrann temporarily inter- 
rupted the streak with a bucket, but 
then Frey, Seiverling, and Artz ran 
the Lebanon Valley margin to 36-28. 
The two rivals matched each other 
point for point until the score reach- 
ed 41-33. At this time the losers 
staged a last desperate rally, but it 
fell short. Hydock tallied twice, Frey 
and Oslislo once each to bring the 
count to 43-39, but after that it was 
all Lebanon Valley. Kress and Frey 
registered two-pointers before Dore- 
mus interceded with his team's last 
score, a foul. Frey and Billett com- 
pleted the conquest by netting field 
goals. The score then remained at 
51-40.

eges vs, 



Organized Baseball ] 



This past week end there occurred an incident that 
put new coals on an already very active fire, namely 
that of Organized Baseball clubs signing college ath- 
letes to contracts while they are still pursuing their 
studies. The Cleveland Indians have been helping Cap- 
tain Boudreau of the University of Illinois baseball and 
basketball teams get enough money to see him through 
college by advancing finances to his mother on his oral 
promise that he would sign a contract with the Cleve- 
land team upon graduating from the university. The 
Western Conference authorities discovered this fact re- 
cently and declared Boudreau ineligible for further participation in inter- 
collegiate athletics. The Cleveland management feels that he is being treat- 
ed unjustly and is willing to do anything possible to restore him to good 
standing. This type of activity by baseball clubs is rather common and the 
colleges are, in most cases, strongly opposed to it because the good baseball 
players are often the good football players also and the baseball teams de- 
mand that these men refrain from playing football because of the excessive' 
danger of permanent injury and therefore a total loss of their investment. 
This demand on the part of the baseball teams is not at all unreasonable, it 
is only a way of protecting their investments. 

As their side of the story the colleges say they are being deprived of the 
full services of their first-rate athletes, and since the balancing of the ath- 
letic budget depends greatly on the success of the football teams which have 
lost the use of these would-be baseball players. Another angle to the situa- 
tion is that some unscrupulous college coaches are making a racket out of 
the whole business by acting as agents for the professional clubs and are 
getting a huge "rake-off" for peddling their wares to these clubs. One coach 
is said to have reaped a profit of approximately $50,000 within the last few 
years in this manner. Some colleges are threatening to abolish baseball be- 
cause their teams are being continually wrecked by the pros snatching up. 
their stars. They do not see why they should act as proving grounds for the* 
pros. 

These are the general facts of the situation ; now for a concrete example 



and the ethics of the practice. The

tance for the remainder of that first 
half and were in arrears 33-31 as it 
ended. 

As soon as the second half opened 
a change in the Flying Dutchmen was 
noticeable. In two and a half minutes 
they had drawn even at 36-36. After 
this it was all Lebanon Valley. Frey 
and Artz combined to score 24 points 
in this last twenty-minute session, 
and the lead reached seventeen points 
at one time. The scrappy little Dick- 
inson quintet was not daunted how- 
ever and pulled up to within four 
points of the leaders with four min- 
utes to go. With the score at this 
point reading Lebanon Valley, 57, 
Dickinson, 53, Captain Billett called 
time-out for a little respite. This 
proved the required tonic because the 
team immediately proceeded to run 
loose. In a whirl-wind display they 
tallied five field goals and two fouls 
in the closing minutes and at the 
same time holding their rivals to one 
long desperate field goal. 

Lebanon's contributions to the team 
turned out to be the high scorers for 
the evening. Raymie Frey led with 
19, and Bob Artz followed with 18. 
Not far behind was Captain Billett 
with 14. Weimar and Doll, two for- 
wards paced the Carlisle five with 16 
and 14 markers respectively. This 
game marked the debut in intercol- 
legiate basketball for Danny Seiver- 
ling, diminutive Valley forward who 
rewarded his supporters by scoring a 
field goal.

Newark Bears of the International 
League, have signed Herman Car- 
ter, University of Alabama outfield- 
er, to a contract which stipulates 
that he shall finish his college course, 
then report to the club, and forego 
further participation in football, in 
return for which he received a bon- 
us. This is the type of agreement 
that is making the college authori- 
ties squawk so loudly. Baseball's ar- 
gument, when the ethics of their ac- 
tivities is questioned, is that they can 
face the public with a far clearer 
conscience than the college authori- 
ties should for their underhand prac- 
tices of subsidization of football play- 
ers under all sorts of weird guises. 
College representatives go around 
making handsome offers to all likely 
football prospects, why should not 
baseball men make similar offers to 
give these athletes and college edu- 
cation before they ask them to up- 
hold their end of the agreement? 
These college representatives rarely, 
if ever, take into the consideration 
the special educational needs of their 
prospects, so why should not base- 
ball men offer a two-fold aid to boys 
by sending them to college for a 
baseball career and also prepare them 
for some other means of livelihood 
when they become obsolete for the di- 
amond game? Professional football 
is at best a short and risky business, 
far more so than baseball. Baseball 
is taking definite steps to get togeth- 
er with the educational authorities 
in this matter and will probably some 
day pass a rule that college men can- 
not be signed before their class has 
graduated, but the colleges leave 
themselves wide open to comebacks 
if they protest baseball's actions 
while they continue their present 
mode of covered-up football subsidi- 
sations.

Gettysburg Tops 
East Penn League 

With the race nearing the half-way 
mark the leader of the Eastern Penn- 
sylvania Conference basketball race 
is the ever-dangerous Gettysburg Col- 
lege quintet. The Bullets have won 
three games and lost only one. This 
lead is very unsafe, however, because 
five of the remaining six teams are 
within striking distance. Even though 
Franklin and Marshall got off to a 
bad start by losing to Lebanon Valley 
73-42, they have rebounded and are 
now in second place with four victor- 
ies and two defeats. This week they 
play Gettysburg for possession of the 
driver's seat. 

Lebanon Valley is tied for third po- 
sition with the high scoring Mules of 
Muhlenberg. In a deadlock for fifth 
place are Ursinus and Albright. The 
unfortunate Drexel Dragons have 
played some good basketball but have 
been unable to crash into the victory 
column, so they have a record of six 
defeats and no victories. Lebanon 
Valley's games with Albright and Ur- 
sinus this week will tell the story as 
to their chances of bringing the cham- 
pionship to Annville for the first time. 
A loss in either encounter will vir- 
tually mean elimination from further 
titular consideration. The stan lings:

"Nights and Sights in 
Cuba"--Gutstein 

Gert Gutstein, student from Danzig, 
stated in an interview that, during his 
recent trip to Cuba he was chiefly im- 
pressed with the amazing degree of 
poverty which is, he says, apparent- 
ly the prevailing standard of living. 

Everywhere there are beggars who 
have learned to distingush wealthy 
outlanders, especially those who come 
from America and brace them for 
small change. If the amount given 
them does not measure up to their 
specifications, they make no attempt 
to conceal their disappointment; on 
the contrary — they villify the donor 
in voluble Spanish profanity. 

In answer to inquiries concerning 
his passage, Gert said that the sea 
being rough, he took the precaution 
of securing a mal-de-mer preventi- 
tive. He was doubly, nay triply cer- 
tain of being: able to withstand the 
ravages of this dread plague of the 
seven seas, since, although the direc- 
tions called for only one pill, he took 
three. It worked. 

"On arriving in the harbor," he 
said, "I observed what looked like a 
group of corpses slowly rising to the 
surface of the water and remarked on 
it to a friend. He explained, however, 
that they were only native divers who 
had swum out to the ship in order to 
dive for coins. Very skillful fellows, 
really — like fish in the water." 

"After we reached shore, we secur- 
ed a guide and set out to see the city. 
Our guide proved himself personally 
trustworthy, although as much could 
not be said for a great number of his 
fellows. For instance, in a restau- 
rant, I gave a five-dollar bill to the 
waiter to change for me. He did not 
soon return with it, and probably 
would not have done so at all, had 
not the guide gone after him. But,' : 
continued Gert, "the incident is far 
from being unusual. The lower class- 
es will prey on the unwary traveller 
at every opportunity." 

"In spite of the extreme poverty 
which drives the majority of the peo- 
ple to such subterfuges, there is con-

Artz Tallies 5 
to Save Game 
With M-berg 

In one of the fastest and most in- 
teresting basketball games of the sea- 
son Bob Artz tallied five points for 
Lebanon Valley in the closing minute 
of the game to give his team a 46-42 
triumph over a stubborn Muhlenberg 
team. In that last minute, Artz, who 
was removed earlier in the game be- 
cause he seemed to be having an off- 
night, came back to register two field 
goals and a foul in rapid succession 
to sweep the crowd off its feet and 
win the game. 

Up to that last rally the big gun in 
the Lebanon Valley attack was the 
lean center, Raymie Frey who sank 
six field goals and five fouls in as 
many tries for a total of seventeen 
points. Tony Rozman followed Frey 
with nine markers. The leaders for 
the visitor., were McKee with 13 and 
Busby with 11. 

Frey opened the scoring activities 
tor the evening by sinking one from 
the field to put his team out in front, 
but that lead did not last long as the 
invaders soon scored a two-pointer 
and a foul. Brown and Frey again 
put the Flying Dutchmen back in the 
van for a short period. The Mules 
then went on a spree and assumed a 
10-7 lead before Eddie Kress swished 
one through from the field and Frey 
did likewise to take a 11-10 lead for 
the homesters. Once again the Mules 
wasted no time in regaining the lead. 
Never again were they behind in that 
first half but the Blue and White cag- 
ers did pull even on three occasions 
only to drop back again and be in 
arrears 29-24 at intermission. 

As soon as the second half started 
it was evident that the Metoxen-men 
were still very much in the game for 
things went like this: Rozman scored 
a foul, Frey netted a two-pointer, 
Brown did likewise, Kress followed 
suit, Frey repeated, and the count 
read Lebanon Valley, 34; Muhlenberg, 
29. Captain Billett chimed in with 
another bucket after the visitors man- 
aged to sink one for themselves. The 
Lebanon Valley cause looked especial- 
ly bright several minutes later when 
a foul by Rozman and a field goal by 
Frey put the Dutchmen ahead 41-35, 
but then things began to happen. The 
Julianmen netted three two-pointers 
and a foul in rapid succession to go 
into the van 42-41 with less than a 
minute to play. It was at this point 
that Coach Metoxen saw fit to inject 
Artz into the game. As has been re> 
lated before, said Mr. Artz proceeded 
to drop in two field goals and a foul 
to win the game, 46-42. 

In the preliminary game the Leba- 
non Valley Freshman five fell before 
the Hershey Industrial School quintet 
29-25. The Hershey outfit lead 11-9 
at half time and the result was al- 
most never in doubt. There was a 
triple tie for scoring honors since 
Geist of the winners and Kuhn and 
Bentzel of the losers each tallied nine 
points. The scores:

Glee Club Tour 



Highly Successful 

Lebanon Valley's Glee Club, under 
the direction of Professor E. P. Rut- 
ledge, and now on an extended con- 
cert tour has been received most en- 
thusiastically wherever it has per- 
formed. Not only is this shown in the 
typical comments made by interested 
individuals, but is also evident in the 
size of the audiences which have 
heard the Club. Not only have the 
ministers of the various churches at 
which the Glee Club has functioned 
reported favorably, but also members 
of the Conservatory faculty who have 
been in attendance at one or more of 
the concerts. One impression was 
that it sounded as if the Glee Club 
had given the concert hundreds of 
times 

Perhaps the sizes of the audiences 
might be considered even more of an 
indication of the popularity of the 
Glee Club's performances, and if lo, 
this must be considered as a most 
favorable indication, for there was re- 
ported an attendance of between six 
and eight hundred at one concert and 
about a thousand at another.

ITS GETTING LATE. 



WISH I COULD BUT I'VE 
GOT TO WRITE UP MY 
RESEARCH ON THE / 
LUMBER INDUSTRY. / 




If you are one of those hardy souls who dare to read for pleasure dur- 
ing even these parlous times, or if you like to pick up a novel for relaxa- 
tion between periods of cramming heavier stuff, the following lines are ded- 
icated to you. 

For those two days when you have no exams and no money we recom- 
mend the reading of Shakespearian plays. Such is the widespread Philistin- 
ism of our times that in all probability you haven't read more than the dozen 
or so more important dramas commonly read in high school and college Eng- 
lish courses. Perhaps that is all you intend to read. On the other hand, if 
you pretend to any appreciation of the writer's art, it goes without saying 
that you want to lay up treasures for yourself in the kingdom of Shakes- 
peare. 

And one of the easiest ways we've yet found to do that is to curl up 
with the old chap when we can spare two or three hours at a stretch. Just 
open him to something you haven't read in the last five years and set to, 
proceeding directly ahead without stopping to consult notes, glossaries, 
and the other scholarly encumbrances with which most editions of the 
bard are burdened. 

Or, if such a helter-skelter plan is offensive to your orderly mind, you 
might use the following resume of a few of the plays we've read in this 
way. Pick out one to suit your mood. 

TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA. Comedy. As we remember— it's 
really been quite some time since we looked through this one — this has to 
do with two young blades and their girl friends. The chaps are firm 
friends, but this does not stop one of them from trying to run away with the 
other guy's goil. Likewise, one of the ladies falls for the wrong gentle- 
man without bothering to make any very loud confessions. Everything 
comes out right in the end, and the boys have switched girl friends. 

We don't recall whether this is one of the plays they blame on some- 
body else or not, but if old Will real- 
ly wrote it, he certainly isn't up to 
snuff. There are numerous brilliant 
lines, and some very witty ones that 
wouldn't get past the Hays office, but 
on the whole you feel that the thing 
was turned out for the holiday trade 
or something. 

A WINTER'S TALE. Comedy. Here 
is the case against the jealous hus- 
band. There is none of that fine com- 
plexity of character which animates 
the plays of the first order, and all 
the people are pretty much types, but 
playwrights and the cinema have been 
cashing in on the plot ever since. 
AUTOLYCUS, A ROGUE and a pas- 
toral clown get off in quite a bit of 
Elizabethan slap-stick, if you care for 
that sort of thing.

siderable wealth on the island, but it 
is concentrated in the hands of some 
few very rich people, chiefly Ameri- 
cans, who control all the more im- 
portant business and financial opera- 
tions on the island, and consequently, 
are able to live in a splendor that is 
a sharp contrast to the squalor of the 
common man's lot." At this point Gert 
paused for breath. But the reporter, 
remembering his technique of inter- 
viewing wanted to know about the po- 
litical situation, so his victim went on, 
perhaps a trifle wearily: "Political 
conditions," he said, "are not exactly 
what one might call stable in Cuba. 
For instance, the students have been 
on strike against the government for 
several months, because they believe 
it opposed to the best interests of the 
proletariat. And their ex-president, 
Machado, is now a fugitive from the 
current counter-revolution, and at- 
tempting to escape extradition by 
hiding in an American hospital under 
pretext of illness."

furnishes sufficient foundation or 
takes sufficient cognizance of physi- 
cal capabilities to warrant treating it 
in the same light as an academic 
course. We will not deny that, theo- 
retically, one might be able to attain 
high scholarship in "gym" by the long 
process of mastering the various 
sports, but we do not believe that this 
is the objective of the course. Per- 
haps the true objective is to insure 
underclassmen of some form of phy- 
sical exercise, and, if that end is ac- 
complished, why attempt to interpret 
the results quantitatively? If a per- 
son is in ill health, or physically de- 
formed, he is exempt from Physical 
Education. But we have never heard 
of physical deformity as grounds for 
exemption from Bible 14! 

We are attempting to point out that 
the same conditions do not obtain in 
Physical Education as do in an aca- 
demic course, and therefore the two 
should not be confused. We never 
heard of a person "flunking" Phy. Ed. 
If he didn't get credit for it, it was 
because he didn't appear often enough 
to indicate that he was enrolled for 
it. A person can get credit for "gym" 
simply by putting in the required two 
hours per week, which is considerably 
below the requirements for any 
"snap" academic course. 

We sincerely hope that there may 
be a reversal to the former system 
of marking in Physical Education, 
since the distortion that the present 
system produces upon the student's 
academic record does not give a true 
outward picture of the facts. If such 
a reversal is impossible, at least it 
would be feasible to omit that grade 
in the calculation of averages, so that 
the final average would be a correct 
index of academic achievement.

College of New York City staged a 
late rally to overcome St. Thomas of 
Scranton 44-37. This game present-

not an uncommon sight to see two 
or three of the combatants on the 
floor at the same time. 

By this victory over Albright the 
Lebanon Valley team assumed a po-

"Zerbe is coming to today's meeting. Are you?" 

With such pertinent and advantageously placed announcements, Anni

quota of Kalos to his recent meeting. 

Walmer was elected Tuesday, Feb. 8, as president in charge of the ar-

shey. The affair is scheduled for Ap- 
ril 22, and the president has announc- 
ed his committees. The committees 
which have been selected include those 
in charge of arrangement for the play 
as well as those for the dance. The 
play will be presented the night be-

Albright College for the past seven 
years, has announced his retirement 
from that office, to be succeeded by 
Dr. Harry V. Masters, Dean of the 
School of Education of Drake Uni- 
versity. 

Dr. Klein has been officially con- 
nected with Albright College for 
thirty-six years, serving as head of 
the history department, vice president 
a nd treasurer of the college, and for 
tll e past seven years as president of 
^e institution. He has also served as 
a trustee. 

Another service to education by Dr. 
Klein was the founding in 1902, along 
^ith a small group of men, of Schuyl- 
kl U Seminary, which was later ex- 
panded into Schuylkill College and 
fina % into Albright College as it ex- 
lsts today.

Dr. Bender Publishes 
Mineral Hunt Story 

The current of Rocks and Minerals 
magazine contains an article by Dr. 
Bender entitled "Some High Lights 
of an Extended Mineral Collecting 
Trip." The article concerns the trip 
taken last summer by Dr. and Mrs. 
Bender to the Rockies and the Black 
Hills. 

The first objective of the tour was 
the Selenite crystal deposits in the 
vicinity of Ellsworth, Ohio. Here 
over two hundred crystals were ob- 
tained, being dug up from a bed of 
very tough clay. Of all these speci- 
mens about one-fourth were perfect. 
In Indiana the Bedford limestone 
quarries were visited as well as the 
stone-working plants north of Bed- 
ford, whence comes the stone for 
many large public buildings. 

The next stop was made at the 
famous Fluorite deposits of southern 
Illinois. At the Benzon Fluospar 
Company many good specimens 
different kinds of Fluorite 
tained, several of which 
museum size. The 
in the tri-state district of south- 
western Missouri were the succeeding 
object of research. In the words of 
Dr. Bender this section is "a crystal- 
lographer's Paradise." Specimens of

Musical Program 

Saturday, February 19, will mark 
the observance of a gala day of en- 
tertainment on the campus, when stu- 
dents will invite their dads to take 
part in the events as presented by the 
Y. M. C. A. This is an annual affair 
and has as its purpose the promotion 
of good fellowship and a spirit of 
social unity. The features of the day 
will include a musical program, a 
banquet, and a smoker. 

The morning period will be open 
with no formal program arranged, 
during which time the dads will be 
given opportunity to make the ac- 
quaintance of other dads and their sons 
and to be shown about the campus. 
Lunch will be served in the college 
dining hall, open to all dads on cam- 
pus at the time. 

Immediately following lunch the 
visiting dads are invited to view the 
work being done in the various science 
labratories. The professors of the 
different sciences, as well as their as- 
sistants, will be on hand to exhibit 
various interesting phenomena and to 
perform interesting experiments. At 
three o'clock a musical program will 
be presented in Engle Hall including 
a variety of musical numbers. The 
program features the Instrumental 
Ensemble presented in Chapel last 
Friday, Flute Trio, a Piano and Or- 
gan Duet, as well as trombone, violin, 
and piano solos. Clio Trio will also be 
presented as part of the entertaining 
program. During the program motion

Erratum 

The editors of LA VIE genuinely 
regret the appearance of the article 
concerning the Red Book survey, 
which found its way into our front 
page in a recent issue. Aside from 
the fact that the article lacked any 
particular merit or healthy interest 
it was absolutely out of place in 
the columns of a college paper. 

Especially do we wish to make it 
clear that the article did not appear 
with the knowledge and approval 
of faculty and administration. LA 
VIE is not subject to faculty cen- 
sorship. The material was receiv- 
ed through reliable channels, but 
an unfortunate series of misunder- 
standings on the part of the var- 
ious branches of the staff, caused 
it to be included, and given the 
prominence it did not merit. 



Gets Fifth Earned 
From University of 



'Cannibalism Extinct', 

Goodman Tells Press 

Missionary's Contribution 
More Important Than Ever 

Interviewed by a La Vie reporter, 
Chester Goodman, the returned Afri- 
can missionary who is at present a 
student at Bonebrake Theological Se- 
minary and who was graduated from 
Lebanon Valley College, stated that 
there was little beyond what he 
broached in his recent series of lec- 
tures that he deemed of interest to 
La Vie readers. 

Questioned concerning cannibal- 
ism, Mr. Goodman said he does not 
believe it is actually practiced in any 
part of Africa today, although there 
are still some of the more primitive 
tribes in which a superstitious belief 
exists to the effect that the eating 
of human flesh will cure certain ill- 
nesses. On the whole, however, the 
inroads of civilization have erased al- 
most all traces of the pristine mores 
of the continent. This fact creates a 
considerable problem because certain 
old taboos are still in effect; yet, due 
to such factors as the disturbance of 
the population ratio by high negro 
mortality during the World War, the 
conditions which made it possible for 
these ancient credoes to be kept prac- 
tically in force, are no longer effec- 
tive. 

Therefore the work of the mission- 
ary is today more important than 
ever because now Africa must face 
problems which can be solved only in 
the far-sighted manner which is im- 
possible to native vision.

On Saturday, 
February 19, 
Professor Mil- 
ton L. Stokes, 
of the Busi- 
ness Adminis- 
tration De- 
partment will 
be granted the 
Ph. D. degree

Stokes revealed to LA VIE that he 
had visited the U. of P. campus last 
Saturday to engage in final prep- 
arations for the degree conferral. 

The occasion upon which the doc- 
torate of philosophy will be awarded 
to Professor Stokes is the mid-term 
graduation from the Philadelphia in- 
stitution. His work was done in the 
Department of Economics, with a 
major in Finance, and Minors in Eco- 
nomic Theory and Transportation.

Xenophon the Stooge Stows 
Away on Glee Club Trip 

The afternoon of February 5, 2:45 o'clock, found the Glee Club in front 
of the Conserve, everyone shined up, suit-case in hand, and rarin' to go. 
Since the party totaled 39 and there were only 31 desirable seats (the oth- 
ers being aisle seats and seats over the wheels), the eight basses and 
eight tenors agreed to take turns being more uncomfortable. But what 
with the presence of couples, new and old, and the passing of the days of 
chivalry, this agreement was all too ' 



frequently ignored. 

The first concert at Carlisle proved 
a successful start, and immediately 
afterwards the keyed-up singers loy- 
ally rushed to the L. V.-Dickinson 
game. Most arrived in time for the 
second half, but strangely enough, a 
few had that certain something which 
got them in without any trouble while 
the rest had to pay. What's the sec- 
ret ? The reason for the clapping L. V. 
section was because the club had def- 
inite orders not to cheer. 

Those who know them had to laugh 
to see Bob Johns and Cecil Oyler hur- 
rying to home of their host, as he liv- 



ed several miles out in the country 
and they were expected to be back 
right after the concert. Report was 
that they also got up early to milk 
the cows. One of the tragedies of the 
trip was the way fate treated Mitzi 
Mills and boy friend Johns — they 
never were able to stay out late on 
the same evenings. 

Since the Shippensburg concert was 
scheduled for the morning, it neces- 
sitated an early start on Sunday. After 
the Club had rushed there and had 
lined up gowned and ready to sing, 
they discovered that they were an

Hey 



to her alumni 

We are always extremely pleased to 
receive expressions of opinion and let- 
ters from the Alumni. And it is with a 
feeling of pride and especial satisfac- 
tion that we print this particular one. 
It is typical of many within our knowl- 
edge, and we believe that it is a matter 
of common interest to know what our 
graduates in important positions think 
of their Alma Mater. 

Apartment 54, 
521 W. 122 Street, 
New York City. 
February 6, 1938. 

Dr. H. H. Shenk, 
Annville, Pennsylvania. 
Dear Mr. Shenk: 

My issue of the Lebanon Valley Alum- 
ni News came just a few days ago — my 
first contact with L. V. for a long time. 
This letter is evidence of its welcome. 

How can I get in touch with the pres- 
ident or secretary of the club in or near- 
est New York City? And even as I ask 
that question, I recall a bit of infor- 
mation that will interest you. As an as- 
sistant to the Secretary of Teachers Col- 
lege, Columbia, I have occasion to know 
the evaluation of work done at various 
institutions in the United States and 
abroad. Fve been genuinely proud of 
the rating given Lebanon Valley as a 
liberal arts college and as a conserva- 
tory. 

If it is of interest to you as a matter 
of records, I received my degree of Mas- 
ter of Arts in Guidance and Personnel 
here last year and am this year a mem- 
ber of the personnel staff in charge of 
admission. 

Sincerely, 
RUTH G. COOPER ('30). 



sacred cows 

This particular time of year marks a 
season of change in most college papers. 
There is that annual flux that all cam- 
puses experience. Old staffs are retir- 
ing, and new editors are moving in. For 
the most part they take office filled with 
enthusiasm and bursting with new ideas. 
We know their attitude, we felt that 
way ourselves in our time — until the 
forces of circumstances polished off the 
rough edges. 

Over at Dickinson, enthusiasm ap- 
pears to run particularly high. "Woe be 
unto sacred cows," announces editor 
Graf, of the Dickinsonian in a spread- 
eagle declaration. "No individual nor 
organization deserving the spotlight of 
criticism shall escape us. There shall 
be no protected interests nor 'sacred 
cows' on the Dickinson campus." 

We appreciate editor Graf's feelings, 
but we have our own ideas on the sub- 
ject, and it is with a view to them that 
we echo this bit of senile comment. 



There are a goodly number of 
"sacred cows" browsing about on 
the Lebanon Valley campus, as 
there are on any campus. We have 
long since ceased to chase them, ex- 
cept as they encroach on our ter- 
ritory. They take the shapes of 
various organizations and individ- 
uals, and sometimes appear in the 
guise of faculty members. Of 
course we can criticise and bring 
them to light. We can point out 
the deficiencies of the Student Gov- 
erning organizations, the clubs, and 
various individuals — but to what 
avail? After all, we have to live, 
work, and associate with these 
individuals, and it isn't going to 
make the exigencies of our getting 
an education any easier to combat 
by contracting a series of blood- 
feuds through free-lance campaign- 
ing. And there isn't any refuge 
provided where journalists can get 
together for purposes of mutual 
commiseration. Even the English 
department is loathe to harbor us 
at times. 

Then there is the case of Howard 
Sheldon, "Fenn's (College) stormy 
journalist," about whom we have 
read considerable during our ten- 
ure of office. But to us it appears 
that Sheldon's chief exploits con- 
sisted in haranguing the Adminis- 
tration about the freedom of the 
press, and telling the Fenn stud- 
ents they lacked culture. However, 
we feel that the administration has 
treated us pretty squarely and 
everybody knows college students 
don't have culture anyway. 

And so, after quietly hoisting 
"archy" over the back fence, and 
turning down Mr. Parran's request 
that we cooperate in the present 
campaign against disease, we have 
settled down to enjoying the re- 
mainder of our office in peace. Per- 
haps our successors may be more 
belligerent, or antisocial by nature. 
We do not know. But be that as it 
may, we expect to allow the "sac- 
red cows" to browse undisturbed 
until a merciful senescence lays 
the more offensive to rest. 




BEYOND -C&MPUS 



There is a new ice cream eating 
champ at Harvard. 

He clinched the title for the 
championship by putting away 24 
plates — four vanilla, 18 chocolate 
and a sundae of particularly veno- 
mous appearance. 

The previous titleholder, a fresh- 
man, yielded to fatigue (or frigid- 
ity) at 19 plates.

The Men's Protective Association 
at Kent State College has the co- 
eds biting their finger nails. 

It proposes "protection" for 
members against alleged coed of- 
fences, to wit: Gold-digging, last- 
minute "date" breaking, standing 
up "dates" and flirting with anoth- 
er while on same. Plus other items. 

Men students get a list of ques- 
tions monthly, and if their answers 
heap guilt upon coeds, a "black 
list" does the rest. The men must 
steer clear of the "guilty" or pay 
a penalty.

Coeds have found a new way to 
"mooch" off unsuspecting Joe Col- 
leges at the University of Texas. 

Here's the way it's done: 

Girl and boy are standing in 
front of Texas Union. Coed's 
friend comes along and asks girl 
for nickel to buy drink. Girl friend 
has no nickel. 

Result: No alternative for boy. 
He must buy both girls a drink.

The Collegiate Review 

Modern engineering offers a career to women as well as men, ac- 
cording to Dean E. A. Holbrook, of the University of Pittsburgh school 
of engineering. 

To relieve the tension of exams, Elmira College serves tea and pre- 
sents a special musical program each afternoon. 

Dean Guy Stanton Ford, acting president of the University of 
Minnesota, received $5.00 from a movie magazine for a letter sent in, 
under his name, to its fan mail column. He is still wondering who 
wrote the letter. 

Horse sense is pure fiction, according to Professor E. A. Trow- 
bridge, mule expert at the University of Missouri, but mule sense is 
something else again. A mule is more valuable than a horse because he 
will refuse to work when he knows his health is endangered, he said. 

California adults are making up for early deficiencies of the "little 
red school house" days. A record breaking total of 10,150 adults are 
now enrolled in the adult educational courses of the Los Angeles campus 
of the University of California. 

Students at Emory University are taking up roller skating. One 
student who wanted to get to classes faster bought the first pair and 

started the new practice now it has replaced the model "A" as the 

badge of the undergraduate. 

Captain Fred W. Griffiths, 65, retired naval reserve officer, is the 
oldest student at Washington University. 

Robert L. Rutter, University of Washington student, has solved 
the high cost of living while he is going to school. He lives aboard a 
36-foot yawl moored to a dock on the southern rim of the University 
campus. 

Wearing shoes is a terrible price to pay for an education, according 
to Ingrid Larsen, coed at the University of Minnesota. At home in 
Hawaii she never wore shoes, so she doffs hers as soon as she gets 
home from classes. 

To escape six more weeks of winter, a coed at the University of 
Iowa caught Mr. Groundhog and blindfolded him on Groundhog Day.

Painful Thought 

Somebody was trying to tell me 
that at Ohio State (pen) a prisoner 
with a one-year term is a freshman 
two-year term a sophomore, and \\\^ 
that. 

Hmmmm, so a lifer would be a p 
G., no? 

Burrit Lupton is a P. G. — at Leba 
non Valley. 

* * * * 
Ain't No Thought 

The subject is painful, and worn 
out by argument. To breathe is to in. 
hale and exhale. Therefore, to in. 
hale is to breathe. Therefore, to ex- 
hale is to breathe. Whether you are 
inhaling or exhaling, you're still 
breathing. A man who inhales above 
water is breathing; the same man who 
exhales below water is still breathing 
The man is breathing under water 
Conclusion: It is possible for man to 
breathe under water. 

George Lazorjack had to fill i n a 
questionnaire for entrance into Grad- 
uate School. He reports that one of 
the questions read: "Fill in past ex- 
perience and positions held (with 
dates)." 

* * * * 

Howard Baier passes along this 
pearl of wisdom. "Two-timers and 
four-flushers always end up behind 
the 'eight ball' - and two times 

four equals eight." 

* * * * 

Did anyone spring this on you yet? 
Which would you rather have, a five- 
dollar gold piece or a five-dollar bill ? 
One usually says the gold piece — but 
you are quickly told that the bill is 
preferable because "when you put it 
in your pocket it doubles and when 
you take it out it's increases." (Boy, 
did I bite!) 



The Bookworm 

II Penseroso 
One of the music students recently 
lended us a copy of the Memoirs of 
Hector Berlioz which we suspect will 
prove to be of passing interest as soon 
as we have time to get beyond the first 
chapter. 

Berlioz, you know, was an early 
dix-neuvieme siecle composer and 
music critic of whom very little is 
heard nowadays. In fact the first 
time we ever heard one of his com- 
positions at all was on a recent Satur- 
day evening concert by Arturo (the 
incomparable) Toscannini. Modem 
musical criticism, as far as we can 
judge, frowns on Monsieur Berlioz, 
the gist of learned opinion being tha 
he is not so hot. Nevertheless, he 
sounds mighty fine to us, if we may 
judge by one selection only from m 
works. Or it simply might have been 
Toscannini's rendition before whic 
even the crassest Philistines among 
our friends make the solemn sala* 
of the faithful. , ye 

Berlioz, according to what we 
read, is really better known as a mus^ 
cal critic than a composer. He is sai ^ 
have been of the Edinburgh schoo 



criticism, which scorned any 



softer 



liquor than vitriol and breathed ^ 
gues of flame on the slightest 
vocation. One writer said of . <j 
that "he wrote with his sword 
of a pen." This faculty, which see

y e Sport's Ed delved into the bas- 
ketball score book the other day and 
out together a set of figures concern- 
ing the courtster ' s records for the first 
eight games of the campaign. Ten 
different men have seen action on the 
court so far, and eight of these have 
broken into the scoring. Coda Spon- 
aU gle and Marshall Frey are the two 
w ho have not tallied as yet. Here are

An analysis of the figures shows 
that Raymie Frey is not only the high 
scorer but he is also by far the best 
foul shooter. His record of 19 con- 
versions in 24 attempts gives him the 
excellent percentage of .792. Two oth- 
er regulars have put in over half of 
the shots from the foul line but neith- 
er of them is close to the tall center. 
Eddie Kress has a percentage of .579 
and Tony Rozman has .533. The team 
percentage is .541, not bad at all. The 
figgers also show that the boys in 
White play a bit rougher than their 
collective opponents. A hasty glance 
would make this statement seem er- 
roneous, but an analysis will prove it 
otherwise. Our team has committed 
a total of 105 personal fouls and has 
shot 109 charity tosses. 109 is not the 
real number of fouls committed by our 
opponents, however, because some of 
the fouls resulted in two shots and 
there were also a few technicals in- 
cluded in this number. The personal 
fouls committed against us are really 
probably somewhere around 90. 



The value of accuracy from the foul 
tine was well brought out in the 
Frosh-Harrisburg Academy game last 
Saturday. The Frosh lost 23-25, but 
% scored 11 field goals to the prep- 
sters 9. The difference was that the 
Fr °sh put in only one out of 12 free 
throws, while the visitors scored 7 
ou t of 9. i n fact it i 00 ked for a while 
as though the Frosh would get a goose

Frey Leads 
Valley Team to 
Ursinus Win 

Led by the amazing Raymie Frey, 
Lebanon Valley trimmed the claws of 
the Ursinus Bears Saturday on the 
Lebanon high school floor by the de- 
cisive score of 61-38, and thus gained 
revenge for an earlier defeat at the 
hands of the Bears. The victory 
boosted the Valleyites to within a 
half game of the pace-setting Bullets 
from Gettysburg. 

The show Saturday was all Frey's. 
Raymie manifested little respect for 
the existing individual scoring rec- 
ord, held incidentally by Keehn of 
Ursinus, who scored a total of 23 
points in their first game with Leba- 
non Valley. Frey went Keehn one 
better by garnering the astounding 
sum of 34 points, on sixteen field 
goals and two fouls. The amazing 
part about the lanky center's per- 
formance was that most of his points 
were scored the hard way — one-hand- 
ed stabs from way out yonder, and a 
goodly number of long set shots. Ac- 
cording to one reliable statistician, 
Frey attempted only thirty-eight 
scoring thrusts, which gave him an 
average of almost .500 for the night. 

Raymie let the Bears know they 
were in for a busy evening at the 
very start of the game, when he tal 
lied two difficult goals in rapid suc- 
cession. At this point the irrepress- 
ible dribbler thrice intercepted Ursi- 
nus passes to dribble to the basket 
and score on lay-up shots — all in the 
short space of twenty seconds or less 
Scoring the first twelve points of the 
game for the Blue and White, Frey 
was removed from the tilt for a rest 
about five minutes before the half 
was through, and at that stage of the 
game had amassed for himself the 
rotund total of 20 markers. 

Also prominent in the Dutchmen's 
victory were Bobby Artz, who played 
his usually alert all-court game and, 
despite adverse scoring luck, racked 
up two buckets and a pair of fouls. 
Captain Ralph Billett, who turned in 
a sterling passing performance, be- 
sides contributing seven timely points 
to the cause; and Ed Kress and Tony 
Rozman, who scored six and five 
points, respectively. 

In the preliminary game the Frosh 
went down to another defeat, this 
time at the hands of the Harrisburg 
Acadamy quintet by a score of 25- 
23, in a rather shoddy exhibition. At 
the start of the fray the collegians 
were hopelessly outclassed, but in the 
later stages they rallied to turn a 
rout into a hotly-contested battle. 
Bentzel paced the yearlings with 
eight counters, while Miller was out- 
standing for the visitors with a like 
total.

all kinds are on sale at roadside 
stands, ranging in price from five 
cents to twenty-five dollars. Giving 
into a confessed weakness for collect- 
ing specimens, in spite of resolutions 
to the contrary on this trip, Dr. Ben- 
der acquired a number of superb 
specimens of Calcite, Galena, Sphale- 
rite, Dolomite, Marcasite, and Barite. 

Several days were spent in the 
Pike's Peak region where many dif- 
ferent kinds of rocks and minerals 
are deposited. A visit made to the 
Cripple Creek gold field enabled Dr. 
Bender to obtain some very fine sam- 
ples of gold tellurides as well as to 
learn much about the extraction of 
gold from these ores. In the Pike's 
Peak area also were obtained speci- 
mens of various granites as well as 
of red Lyons sandstone. The latter 
constitutes the rocks of unusual form 
such as the "Balanced Rock" which 
are found in the "Gardens of the 
Gods." 

After a visit to the Rocky Mountain 
Alabaster Company at Fort Collins, 
Colorado, where samples of Alabaster 
rock and art work were obtained, Dr. 
Bender proceeded to the Black Hills. 
Here is to be found the largest gold 
mine in America, the Homestead Gold 
Mine. A trip through the gold extrac- 
tion plant was most interesting and 
instructive. An average of sixty 
thousand dollars worth of gold is re- 
covered daily by the cyaniding and 
amalgamating operations. However, 
nuggets are seldom found, even among 
such a mass of gold ore as is used. 
The few bits of gold that have been 
found are kept in an office in a small 
vial. 

While in South Dakota Dr. Bender 
acquired specimens of granite from 
the famous Rushmore Mountain where 



Gutzon Borglum is producing the 
heads of the four greatest presidents 
of the United States in a national 
monument of gigantic size. On the 
return trip select iron ore from Su- 
perior deposits was obtained at Lo- 
rain, Ohio, and a stop at Clay Center, 
Ohio, resulted in the securing of a 
number of Celestite specimens along 
with a number of fossils from this 
formation. 

On the whole, many superb speci- 
mens were collected on this trip, some 
of which may be seen in the hall cases 
of the Administration Building.

Prof. Stokes Receives 
Doctorate from U. of P.

will be the fifth that Prof. Stokes has 
earned. In 1920 he was graduated 
with the B. A. degree with honors in 
the Department of Political Science 
of the University of Toronto. Two 
years later, he was accorded the M. A. 
degree for research work in the field 
of Economics from the same univer- 
sity. In 1926 he was granted the Bar- 
rister-at-Law degree of Osgoode Hall 
Law School by the Benchers of the 
Upper Canada Law Society, and was 
admitted to practise at the Ontario 
Bar as barrister and solicitor. 

Following the Barrister-at-Law de- 
gree, Prof. Stokes pursued courses in 
Roman Law, Jurisprudence, Medical 
Jurisprudence and Domestic Relations. 
Upon the publication of a thesis com- 
paring the Law Courts of Australia, 
Canada and the United States, he re- 
ceived the LL. B. degree from the 
University of Toronto. 

As a result of this acquaintance 
with Canadian economics, Prof. Stokes 
has published several important ar- 
ticles, which have won wide acclaim. 
Just two years ago the Canadian 
Bankers' Association purchased the 
Canadian rights to his article relat- 
ing to Taxation of the Banks in Can- 
ada. 

His thesis qualifying for the Ph. D 
degree at present is also on the Can 
adian Banks, being entitled "The De 
velopment and Present Position of 
Central Banking in Canada." An ab- 
stract of Prof. Stokes dissertation, 
tracing the Canadian Banks from be- 
fore the War to the Bank of Canada 
in 1935, is presented below: 
Abstract of the Thesis 

For his Doctor's dissertation Mr. 
Stokes presented a thesis of approxi- 
mately three hundred and twenty 
pages with approximately one hund- 
red pages appendix, in addition, on 
Canada's New Central Bank, the Bank 
of Canada. Most of the work was 
done in Ottawa, Canada, during the 
past three summers at the Bank of 
Canada and in the Parliamentary Lib- 
rary of the Dominion of Canada in 
Ottawa. 

The thesis points out that the de- 
pression and the recent upheaval in 
world finance, accompanied by a 
breakdown of the gold standard, have 
led to a clearer recognition of the in- 
fluence which the monetary system of 
a country may exert on the general 
economy and of the part which a 
wisely-regulated banking system may 
play on a wider stage. 

The thesis states that recent years 
have brought new and changing re- 
sponsibilities to banking systems and 
bankers generally. Instead of confin- 
ing his attention mainly to safeguard- 
ing the interests of his depositors and 
the shareholders, the banker is now 
expected to discharge an additional 
important, although perhaps less ob- 
vious, responsibility — a spare in try- 
ing to maintain stability and to reg- 
ulate the quantity and flow of credit, 
and an active interest in price levels, 
in the fluctuations of interest, in in- 
ternational monetary co-operation — in 
short, in all the matters which con- 
cern national finance. The adequacy 
of a modern banking system is jud- 
ged, in part, by its ability to lend as- 
sistance in these wider spheres of ac- 
tion. 

Although there have been no bank- 
ing failures in Canada in many years, 
it had become increasingly clear to 
many in Canada that the banking sys- 
tem as it existed, was not adequate to 
assume these new and increasing re- 
sponsibilities, that only a central bank 
could supply the essential link in the 
chain making for an effective central- 
ized control and regulation of credit 
and foreign exchange. 

After several years of discussion 



concerning the need for the establish- 
ment of a central bank in Canada, 
legislation was passed by the Parlia- 
ment of Canada in June, 1934, estab- 
lishing such a bank to unify the bank- 
ing credit and monetary organiza- 
tions of the country. Canada has be- 
come the last of the important nations 
of the world to organize such an in- 
stitution. 

In reorganizing a central bank 
Canada has in no way changed her 
commercial system of branch banks 
which have been eminently success- 
ful. The Bank of Canada is simply 
an institution which unifies the whole 
banking system, is responsible for the 
control of credit, is financial and eco- 
nomic adviser to the government of 
Canada and the Provincial Govern- 
ments and represents Canada abroad 
in international monetary confer- 
ences. 

Mr. Stokes points out that the 
words of the Charter of the Bank of 
Montreal, one of Canada's largest 
banks, are almost identical with 
those of the First Bank of the United 
States. 

The thesis describes the historical 
development, structure and operations 
of the Bank of Canada. Beginning 
with a description of the pre-war 
Canadian monetary system, the thesis 
traces the growth of central banking 
in Canada down to the establishment 
of the Bank of Canada in 1935. The 
structure, organization, and functions 
of the Bank are described and an an- 
alysis is made of the Bank's opera- 
tions to date. 

In the absence of a money market 
in Canada, doubt is expressed that 
open market operations and varia 
tion in rediscount rates will be effec- 
tive in influencing the general vol- 
ume of credit and the general price 
level. The view is expressed that due 
to the peculiarities of the Canadian 
economy and Canada's dependence on 
the results of international trade, a 
purely domestic policy, such as the 
stabilization of the level of wholesale 
prices, must be subordinated to the 
achievement of stability of the for- 
eign exchange value of the Canadian 
dollar in terms of the currencies of 
the countries with which Canada 
trades. Mr. Stokes is of the opinion 
that the Bank's future role will be 
largely that of acting as the fiscal 
agent, banker and economic advis- 
er of the Federal and Provincial Gov- 
ernments. 

The self-governing nations of the 
British Empire have each established 
a central bank. Co-operation among 
the banks may be expected to result 
in a closer coordination of empire 
monetary policy and technique. This 
chain of empire central banks has 
been completed while the economic 
affairs of the world has been in a 
state of flux. As a tangible result 
there is likely to be a greater identity 
of economic interests. 



"Y" Cabinets Plan 
For Celebration 
of Dad's Weekend

graphed outdoors, including the May 
door recreation room of the "Y" in 
the Men's Dormitory, especially if the 
weather is unfavorable. 

The big event of the day will take 
place when the bell is sounded for 
the banquet at five o'clock in the din- 
Day celebration and Home Coming 
Day, will be shown. 

The remainder of the afternoon 
may be spent outdoors or in the din- 
ing hall exclusively for fathers and 
sons. Introductory remarks by the 
president, Dr. Lynch, will be followed 
by the banquet-speech by Dr. H. H. 
Shenk, professor of history, on the 
subject of "Washington and Lincoln." 

Following the banquet a smoker will 
further help to promote a good spirit 
in a very informal manner. Professor 
Grimm will give a few remarks at 
this affair and entertainment will be 
furnished by Hackman's Hill Billies. 

The program for Dad's Day has 
been worked out by Ben Goodman, 
social chairman of Y. M. C. A. Cabi- 
net, assisted by other members of the 
senior and freshman Y cabinets. The 
members of the cabinet express the 
wish that students will contact their 
fathers and urge them to be here for 
the day, in order to make the day a 
distinct success and have the dads 
leave the campus with a good impres- 
sion of Lebanon Valley and its work 



On the Tour With 
the Glee Club 



Dates Set For Raceptions 

Dates have been set for the an- 
nual teas for the undergraduate 
classes given by Dr. and Mrs. 
Lynch in their home. The Junior 
Tea will be held Wednesday after- 
noon, February 23 from 3:30 to 
5:20. It is customary at these af- 
fairs for the class cousins to sup- 
ply the entertainment and to assist 
in serving, so a group from the 
Freshman class will give a musical 
program and a committee of fresh- 
man girls will serve refreshments. 

On Thursday, March 2 at the 
same hour, the president and his 
wife will entertain the Sophomore 
class, and the Freshman tea will 
be held the following week on Wed- 
nesday, March 9. Class cousins 
will assist with entertaining and 
serving for the Sophomore and 
Freshman Teas also. 



Goodman Speaks on 
Fellowship Work at 
Recruit Meeting 

A very interesting meeting of the 
Life Work Recruits was held in 
North Hall parlor at 7 P. M. last 
Monday evening. The committee ar- 
ranged for Rev. Chester Goodman, a 
student at Bonebrake Theological Se- 
minary and brother to Ben Goodman 
of the present junior class at L. V. 
C, to be the speaker. 

The meeting was opened by the 
group singing "Love Divine." Solo- 
mon Caulker led in the devotions, at 
the conclusion of which he introduced 
the guest speaker. Mr. Goodman gave 
some very interesting remarks on 
Africa and conducted an informal 
discussion. This was entered into 
with much interest by all. 

During the business meeting Paul 
Horn gave a report of the deputa- 
tions. Mr. Horn stated that last Sun- 
day the Life Work Recuit deputa- 
tions covered approximately 600 miles 
through East Pennsylvania and Penn- 
sylvania Conferences. The meeting 
was closed with prayer by Doyle 
Sumner. 



(Continued from page 1) 

hour too early. The hostesses for the 
day all seemed to desire men as guests 
(Does Shippensburg have an extra 
supply of females?), and as a result 
of new acquaintances, Creeger and 
John Miller were escorted back to the 
bus by two young ladies. It had been 
rumored that they plan to correspond. 

By the time they reached Chambers- 
burg the crew realized that this was 
not all fun. An alumnus, Jack Glen, 
was on hand to deal out tired, soiled 
members to the different homes. Af- 
ter the concert that evening Professor 
Rutledge advised ten hours' sleep and 
a considerable amount of fasting. 

Following the Waynesboro concert 
on Monday evening, all of the group 
were presented with free tickets to a 
recital by a "world-famed" organist, 
but it turned out to be a three-ring 
circus instead. Since that, there is 
always a hint of a grin on their faces 
when the club sings "Heroes, Mar- 
tyrs." Further details may be had 
from any member upon request. 

Carol Malsh celebrated her thir- 
teenth birthday and was presented 
with an umbrella by the club. 

At Creeger's home town, Thurmont 
it was learned that his friends prefer 
to call him Junior Creeger. But Jun- 
ior's mother was a splendid hostess 
to a party for the entire club at her 
home after the concert. Most of the 
group had to leave early to get to 
their respective farm houses several 
miles out of the "city" limits. Speak- 
ing of farms, the hotcakes and sau- 
sages were swell! After a sleepless 
night and much biting of finger-nails 
Mildred Gardner and Beatrice Fink, 
who had locked themselves in their 
room and then had broken the key, 
made their exit via the window and a 
porch roof. 

Once in Hagerstown everyone bus- 
ied himself either with shopping or 
sight-seeing at the Moller organ fac- 
tory — even the couples. Here, as at 
every other stop, some popular peo- 
ple received mail from the school and 
home, the most fortunate ones being 
Dorothy Null and George Yokum. 
Some public enemies sent several of 



the members' grades to haunt them 
for the rest of the journey. 

When the long stretch from Hag- 
erstown to Washington came up, then 
the people in the aisle seats moaned 
for the first time. After arriving in 
the capital city, a guide was hired, 
and the bus took the group sight-see 
ing. The large number of greenbacks 
in the Washington collection plate to- 
gether with the roses and baskets of 
fruit that Nora Franklin and Anna 
Morrison found in their room restored 
a belief in Santa Claus. The temper- 
ature was low and the taxi fares were 
high. Isabel Cox left her glass case 
under the dome of the capital. And, 
by the way, those who followed Anna 
Morrison for what she termed a 
"short" distance from the capital to a 
Chinese restaurant through a wet, 
blinding snow learned what a New 
Dealer's idea of "just around the cor- 
ner" might be. 

At Baltimore, Prof. Crawford sur- 
prised all by unexpectedly popping in 
Needless to say, that was the best 
concert of the series. 

During the Dallastown concert the 
group seemed very sad. Prof. Rut 
ledge remarked that if their faces got 
any longer they would touch their 
knees. Some tried to cheer up under 
the influence of a local movie after 
ward and were entertained by the rats 
that kept running across the floor 
during the show. 

After the York concert on Sunday 
the tired group started home, reaching 
the conserve about six o'clock in the 
evening. Everything was safely re- 
turned including Carol Malsh's bee, 
Jean Marbarger's gentle lark and the 
club's "bells." The slogan now is: — 
"Let's do it all over again."

man club, under the supervision of 
Miss Lena Lietzau, is making prep- 
arations for a gala event in the way 
of stage productions. Die Deutsche 
Verein is polishing their interpreta 
tion of "Einer Muss Heiraten!" The 
title itself indicates an entertaining 
story of "one who must marry." 

This is a tale of two bachelor col- 
lege professors who live with their 
housekeeping aunt, Esther Flom, who, 
eventually unable to put up with their 
ecceutricities any longer, demands 
that one of them get married. The 
victim, but that is giving secrets 
away, is either William Clark or Cal- 
vin Spitler, who awkwardly goes 
about trying to win the affection of 
Luise, Marianne Treo. The outcome 
of the attempt is, to say the least, 
humorous. 

The opening of the evening, Wed- 
nesday, March 2, at 8 P. M. in Engle 
Hall, will consist of a "sing" includ- 
ing the favorite "Schnitzelbank" and 
the irresistable "Zu Lauterbach" 
("Where oh where has my little dog 
gone," to you). 

It might be added that if this play 
is a success, it will travel to the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania stage to com- 
pete in a modern language play festi- 
val on April 9. It therefore possesses 
great possibilities. 

Bob Spohn is the director, staging 
will be done by Paul Horn and Dan- 
iel Shearer, and Sylva Harclerode 
will do the make-up. 



Quartet Features 
Students' Recitals 

The second Student Recital of the 
year was given last Tuesday evening, 
February 22nd, at 8:00 in Engle Hall. 
A brass quartet, made up of Harold 
Yeagley and Dwight Heiland, cornet, 
and Frank Bryan and Phil Lester, 
trombone, opened the program with 
the playing of "Nocturne" from "Mar- 
tha," by Flotow. Schumann's "Ro- 
mance in F sharp Major" was then 
heard with Lucie Cook at the piano. 

Prelude and Fugue in A Minor" was 
tendered at the piano by Marion 
Keiff which she f n 0W ed by the 
Brahms "Rhapsody in E flat Major." 
Christine Yoder, soprano, then ap- 
peared on the program and sang a 
Sroup of songs, opening with "When 
f (f ? ave Sun S M y Songs," by Charles, 

Lovely Night," from the song 
cycle "Summertime," by Ronald, and 
the aria "One Fine Day," from "Mad- 
Butterfly," by Puccini, brought 

he group to a close. It was followed 
the rendition of Cesar Franck's 

**iece Heroique" by Robert Smith at 
t J e organ. The recital was brought 
k a close with two violin selections 
s ^ °leta Dietrich, who played the 

toessel "Lullaby" and "Valse Co- 
<I* ette " W C. C. White. She was ac- 
^Panied by Marian Reiff. 



Commencement Speaker 

In a recent interview, President 
Lynch announced that Doctor 
Ralph W. Sockman, one of the 
most outstanding clergymen of the 
United States, has been chosen as 
commencement speaker for the 
graduation exercises to be held in 
June. 

Dr. Sockman graduated from 
Ohio Wesleyan College in 1911, 
receiving the A.B. degree. In 1913 
and 1917 he obtained the degrees 
of M.A. and Ph.D. respectively. 
Ohio Wesleyan, Ohio Western, 
Wesleyan, and the New York Uni- 
versity have all conferred upon 
him the degree of Doctor of Di- 
vinity. The degree of Doctor of 
Laws was bestowed upon him by 
Dickinson College. During the pe- 
riod between 1917 and the present 
time, Doctor Sockman has been 
student assistant, assistant pastor, 
and pastor of Christ Church, New 
York City. He is a member of 
Phi Beta Kappa. 

The information received from 
Doctor Lynch concerning the plans 
for the commencement program 
also indicated the selection of Dr. 
Paul E. Holdcraft, pastor of the 
Emmanuel United Brethren 
Church, Hagerstown, Maryland, 
for the Baccalaureate services.

$1000 in Prizes For 
Student Writers 

THE LEAGUE OF AMERICAN 
WRITERS, in conjunction with the 
American Student Union and the 
Friends of the Abraham Lincoln Bri- 
grade, announces the offer of One 
Thousand Dollars in prizes to student 
writers enrolled as undergraduates in 
American or Canadian universities, 
colleges, or secondary schools during 
the academic year 1937-8. 

The first prize will be $500. There 
will be other prizes of $250, $125, $75 
and $50. 

The subject posed for discussion is: 
"The antifascist struggle in Spain to- 
day, and its relation to the general 
welfare of the American citizen of to- 
morrow." This statement is not to be 
construed as restricting the student 
in the selection of a title for the work 
he submits. 

No particular method of treatment 
is required: either imaginative or 
critical material may be submitted. 
The writer may send in either poetry 
or prose, film or radio script, fiction, 
drama or essay. Neither are limits set 
as to length, although candidates are 
reminded that a decent sense of pro- 
portion constitutes one indispensable 
quality of good writing. 

Members of the League of Ameri- 
can Writers will read and pass on the 
various manuscripts submitted in 
their several subject fields, and the 
ultimate selection will be made by a 
jury consisting of the following 
judges: Elliot Paul, Donald Ogden 
Stewart, Jean Starr Untermeyer, H. 
V. Kaltenborn, Robert Morss Lovett, 
and Clifford Odets. Their decision 
will be final. 

If in the opinion of the judges the 
value of none of the manuscripts is 
commensurate with the prizes offer- 
ed, the judges reserve the right to 
withhold any or all of the prizes.

Men Debaters 
Meet Success 
In Openers 

Split With Elizabethtown 
Win Over Shippensburg 
On Labor Question 

The men's debating teams of Leb- 
anon Valley split a home-and-home 
debate with Elizabethtown College 
last Thursday evening. It was the 
initial debate for both affirmative and 
negative combinations, the first in 
what is planned to be an extensive 
season of debating. 

The affirmative team of Lebanon 
Valley, composed of Clifford Barn 
hart and Calvin Spitler, won a unan 
imous three- judge decision in Philo 
Hall over the negative debaters of 
Elizabethtown. The visitors had a 
smother attack in the main speeches 
with Lebanon Valley coming back 
stronger in the rebuttals, although 
both teams were very evenly matched 
throughout. 

Following the debate the judges 
consented to answer any questions 
which the audience had to ask, al- 
though most of those attending de- 
clined the invitation. The judges then 
expressed their criticism of both sides 
and suggestions for improvement. 

Dr. Amos Black acted at chairman 
and presided over the contest, while 
the judges were Miss Sara Bowman, 
coach of debate in Lebanon High 
School, Mr. Henry Hollinger, debate 
coach of Annville High School, and 
Dr. W. A. Wilt, college pastor. 

On Thursday evening the Lebanon 
Valley negative team of Marlin Es- 
penshade and Raymond Smith met a 
reversal at the hands of the Eliza- 
bethtown affirmative. Dr. E. H. Ste- 
venson, coach of the men's team, 
transported the debaters to the scene 
of action. 

On Tuesday afternoon, the affirma- 
tive team of Calvin Spitler and Clif- 
ford Barnhart met and defeated the 
negative team from Shippensburg 
State Teacher's College. 

The debate chairman was Curvin 
Dellinger and the result was based 
on an audience decision, measured by 
the comparative number of listeners 
changing their views from one side 
to the other. The question was the 
standard question of the Debating 
Association of Eastern Colleges, 
namely that of granting power to the 
National Labor Relations Board of 
settling industrial disputes.

Recruits Sponsor 
Two Deputations 

Last Sunday a Life Work Recruit 
deputation was sent to the Trinity 
United Brethren Church of New 
Cumberland, Pa. The speaker for the 
morning service was Carl Ehrhart. 
Ethel Houtz officiated, while Marion 
Reiff presented the special music. 
During the Sunday School hour Miss 
Houtz taught an Adult Class. For 
the evening service Mr. Ehrhart was 
again the guest speaker. Cecil Oyler 
gave a trumpet solo, accompanied by 
Miss Reiff. During the Christian En- 
deavor service Miss Houtz was the 
speaker. Dr. L. Walter Lutz is the 
minister of this congregation. 

Another group journeyed into York 
County for two services. The morn- 
ing service was at the Yoe United 
Brethren Church, Rev. J. H. Lehman, 
minister. In the Sunday School ses- 
sion Howard Peffley and John Ness 
taught classes. The special speaker 
was Thomas Guinivan, while music 
was rendered by Jean Marbarger, 
vocalist, and Amy Meinhardt, pian- 
ist. Then the group traveled to the 
First United Brethren Church of 
York for the evening. Howard Pef- 
fley was the Christian Endeavor 
speaker, while Thomas Guinivan 
again delivered the message of the 
worship service. Paul Horn officiated 
at the evening meeting, assisted by 
Howard Peffley and John Ness. 



Recession Increases N. Y. A. Needs 



The growing "Recession" is having 
an important and unfortunate effect 
upon young people, many of whom are 
college students. In recent weeks 
large numbers of boys and girls and 
young men and young women have 
been certified to local units of the 
National Youth Administration for 
federal assistance. 

The NYA, however, operating un- 
der a reduced budget, is in no position 
to care for the additional load it is 
cailed upon to carry. Its allocation 
was reduced about one third for the 
current fiscal year and now the need 
among young people is growing great- 
er with each passing day. 



Valley Loses 
League Lead 
to Gettyburg 

Airtight Defense Stops 
High-Scoring Dutchmen 
To Win Easily, 39-25 

Found! The outfit that can stop 
Lebanon Valley's high scoring aggre- 
gation. For the second time the Bul- 
lets of Gettysburg turned the trick, 
this time by a 39-25 count at the Her- 
shey Sports Arena last night. The 
G-burgers took the lead after about 
Ave minutes of play and never relin- 
quished it thereafter. At half time 
they led 24-11, and they even manag- 
ed to stretch that advantage to 18 
points at one time. 

The Flying Dutchmen plainly had 
an off night. Their defense was up 
to its usual standard, but offensively 
they just could not do anything. Ray- 
mie Frey was high scorer with the 
meager total of eight points. Fur- 
thermore the boys tried too hard and 
committed no less than 14 personal 
fouls. 

Bob Artz opened the game by net- 
ting a two-pointer, but Bommer's foul 
and Hamilton's field goal erased this 
margin. Kress and Frey put Leba- 
non Valley back in the van by regis- 
tering field goals, but that was the 
last time Gettysburg was behind. Two 
double deckers by Bommer and a foul 
by Billett knotted the count at seven. 
Following this Weems scored a foul, 
Hamilton two field goals and Frey 
one to make the score 12-8 after ten 
minutes of play. 

The remainder of the first half was 
all Gettysburg. The Blue and White 
tallied only three more points in the

the President asked Congress this

though the individuals can't be quot-

so indicate that they are about as 
hopeful of getting additional student- 
aid as the Chinese have of appealing 
to the better nature of the Japanese 
war lords. 

As yet, of course, the additional re- 
lief funds are not available. In fact 
the bill hasn't even been reported out

Studio Recital 
Set For Tonight 

The College Conservatory of Music 
is embarking upon a busy season with 
student recitals scheduled at frequent 
intervals throughout the next several 
weeks. 

The program arranged for this eve- 
ning's recital will include vociil selec- 
tions by Christine Kreider and Lucy 
Cook. Helen Butterwick and Doro- 
thy Yeakel will be heard at the piano, 
the former in Debussy's "Arabesque," 
and the latter in two of Chopin's pre- 
ludes. Several organ selections will 
be rendered by Lucille Maberry. 

All the recitals are open to stud- 
ents and public at no charge. 



Recruits Hold 
Social Meeting 

Last Monday evening the Life 
Work Recruits met in the North Hall 
Parlor at 6:45 P. M. After an open- 
ing song John Ness led in the devo- 
tions. Then a dramatized form of the 
scriptural passages was arranged by 
Ethel Houtz. This dramatization was 
of the second and twenty-fourth 
Psalms. Each of the members pres- 
ent participated in this form of en- 
tertainment. The meeting was then 
closed by the singing of "Fairest Lord 
Jesus" and the Mizpah Benediction.

$ fellowship in a 
world project 

One of the main objectives of a mod- 
ern educational institution, and a liberal 
arts college in particular, is to help the 
student acquire a broader outlook, to 
help him see beyond the narrow con- 
fines of his own life and needs, even fur- 
ther than the demands of the campus, 
out into the wider world about him. Be- 
fore a man can call himself educated he 
must be able to appreciate the problems 
confronting people not in his immediate 
vicinity, to evaluate conditions not af- 
fecting him directly, and finally to share 
what experience or advantages he has 
acquired with those people who are less 
advanced in the scale of civilization, and 
less prepared for the changes constant- 
ly taking place throughout the world, by 
which he will ultimately be affected 
whether he wishes it or not. 

The Student World Fellowship Project 
is such an endeavor, and as such is pe- 
culiarly adapted for the support of a 
Christian institution. Although the 
college student is often accused of be- 
ing uncultured, most students, with a 
modicum of enlightenment, are able to 
see the opportunity offered by such a 
project and support it accordingly; and 
not only to the extent of signing pledges, 
but even to the extent of actually pay- 
ing the full amount pledged. 

The World Fellowship Project began 
in 1927 when students of Lebanon Val- 
ley, Otterbein, and Indiana Central con- 
tributed an amount toward the upkeep 
of Albert Academy, the United Brethren 
school for boys in Freetown. Since then 
the project has been enlarged and the 
fund increased so as to warrant sending 
a student representative to teach for 
two years in one of the mission schools 
in Sierra Leone. The college from which 
the student shall be selected is deter- 
mined by the amount of money contrib- 
uted per capita by each one of the five 
United Brethren colleges and the Sem- 
inary, taking a representative from each 
school in order until all have been repre- 
sented. 

Although Lebanon Valley's contribu- 
tions have ranked second highest in to- 
tal, the College has not yet been al- 
lowed a representative because of the 
lower amount per person in comparison 
to the others. Therefore, whether Leb- 
anon Valley's campus shall have the hon- 
or of being represented in Africa for the 
next term will be determined by the 
amount contributed by the students of 
the College in the next two years. 

The project has been explained in 
chapel, everyone has been or will be con- 
tacted by a representative, and nothing 
remains except the actual contribution. 
The cause is a worthy one and fully de- 
serving of the support of everyone on 
Lebanon Valley's campus.

A coed at the University of Chat-

one white lampshade, one bathtub

An ACP release of several weeks 
ago to the effect that students of 
today are more studious than their 
prototypes of ten years ago and 
less given to religious skepticism, 
drinking and moral infraction elic- 
ited the following poem in the 
Temple University News. 
Oh see the modern student 
His books upon his knees; 
He has no time for pleasure, 
For pleasure might bring Es. 
He never goes to dances, 
He never takes a drink 
And through his leisure hours 
He'll think and think and think. 
He's really quite religious, 
And not at all a skeptic, 
He regulates his diet 
(And still remains dyspeptic). 
His morals are superb 
His manners inspiration, 
For truly he's as good 
As gold before inflation. 
The En Em Ess See says it — 
No more shall I amaze 
When some poor student cries, 
"Give me the good old days!" 
P. S. Authority for the statement 
about the goodness of students was 
a national collegiate church group.

Wallflowers at the University of 
Tennessee don't know whether to 
be sad or happy. 

Dancing taught "in 10 easy les- 
sons" is the latest activity of the 
physical education department. 
BUT the instructor has made it 
clear that those who "have no rhy- 
thm, no spirit of the dance, and 
those who just can't be taught to 
dance," are barred from entering 
the class. 

So it seems that if you're a Ten- 
nessee student and a wallflower be- 
cause you have a hard time with 
your dancing, the last place you 
want to go is to the University's 
dancing class — where only those 
having natural grace are welcome.

ation as some two hour academic

that girls who have done this work 
should be given at least the one 
hour credit in the calculation of 
averages. If no emphasis is laid 
upon the value of a physical edu- 
cation mark, what is to prevent 
honor students from cutting most 
of their classes? For it is ap- 
parently an honor student who 
was protesting and therefore one 
who had unlimited cuts. To deny 
the value to physical education 
marking is to question physical 
education a place in the college 
curriculum, which is contrary to 
modern educational trends.

To the Editor of La Vie:— 
The recent editorial in La Vie 
regarding physical education 
marking did Lebanon Valley's 
physical education course for wo- 
men an injustice. Apparently the 
article was written by one of the 
men students unfamiliar with the 
women's program who did not 
state that his arguments were 
based on his own experience, un- 
less the editor's note denying the 
intention of a pun was sufficient 
qualification. In the girls' health 
program thex*e is a fair balance 
of the science and art elements, 
and proportionate credit is given 
for mental as well as physical 
work, so that it is not beyond the 
realm of possibility for an honor 
student to achieve an honor grade 
in physical education. 

Furthermore the outside read- 
ing, written assignments, and 
written examinations require as 
much time and effort for prepar-

The Collegiate Review 

Thirty-two students at the University of Nebraska are working their 
way through school by scraping bones of prehistoric animals for the 
university museum. 

Police questioned 13 University of Tulsa students recently whom 
they suspected of being "grave robbers," only to find that they were 
just filling a hell week assignment — copying data from tombstones on 
order of their fraternity "brothers." 

Every third Saturday at 4 a. m., Arthur L. Loessin, of Columbia, S. 
D., starts a 300 mile drive to attend the special classes for public 
school teachers held at the University of North Dakota. He travels 
the greatest distance of any in the class. 

Students at the University of Kansas City are such sleepy-heads 
that Dean Glenn G. Bartle had to enlist the aid of the student council 
to keep them awake in the university "browsing room." 

The University of Arizona recently enrolled four new "students"

Katharine Hepburn, when she visited the campus of Randolph-

he is editor of Harper's history series — a group of textbooks, editor-in-

Down Broadway 

J. C. Furnas, author of "And Sud- 
den Death," is embarking on a study 
of the smoking habits of prominent 
people. He is preparing a short but 
poignant and, we trust, cheery book 
on the nation's smoking habits and 
the national complex about oversmok- 
ing. 

Students of the theater are acclaim- 
ing the fact that out of more than a 
score of the successful plays now on 
Broadway, at least ten are serious 
and brilliant studies dealing with the 
problems of man's spiritual existence. 
Pick of these are "Of Mice and Men," 
"Golden Boy," "Susan and God," "The 
Star-Wagon," "On Borrowed Time/| 
"Our Town," "Shadow and Substance 
and "Many Mansions." The play s 
which have met with the most favor- 
able public reaction are Paul Osborn s 
"On Borrowed Time" and Thornton

which have helped save a mediocre

^rtz Leads 
Scoring In 
prexel Game 

gix in a row, that is what Billett, 
Artz, and company made it at 
n ex'el Saturday night. This time it 
Bobby Artz who led the scoring 
Wa ra de for the Flying Dutchmen in 
K ir 57~44 conquest of the hapless 
Dragons- This game coupled with 
Albright's defeat of Gettysburg put 
he Valleyites in first place in the 
Eastern Pennsylvania League for the 
grat time in many moons. 

Lebanon Valley's usual high scor- 
Raymie Frey, experienced a bad 
night, tallying only six markers in- 
stead of his customary double digit 
total. The main reason for this was 
the fact that he had no less than 
three personal fouls called on him in 
^ first four minutes of the game 
an d Coach Metoxen had to remove 
him before he got that fourth foul. 
Up to that time he had scored just 
a field goal. With nine minutes to 
play he was re-inserted into the fray 
and registered two more field goals. 

Frey's fellow townsman, Bob Artz, 
come to the rescue with nine field 
goals and two fouls for 20 points to 
keep scoring honors in the City of 
Lebanon. Captain Billett and Eddie 
Kress also took a very active part in 
the scoring with ten points apiecs. 
Both would have had higher totals 
were it not for the fact that the re- 
feree thought that they were taking 
too many steps before shooting. 

For the home team the high men 
were Wolfe and Nannos with 11 
markers each. The unfortunate Dra- 
gons put up a game fight, but they 
were just outclassed throughout the 
encounter. It was the eighth straight 
league loss for them. The score:

Before Valley 
Courtsters 

With Raymie Frey again leading 
the attack the Lebanon Valley basket- 
ball team rolled over the Franklin & 
Marshall team on the Lancaster court 
by a 63-48 count. The team as a 
whole clicked almost perfectly in 
every part of the floor until the 
hugeness of the court cut down their 
endurance in the closing minutes of 
the encounter. For Frey it was an- 
other grand scoring display. He tal- 
lied 12 field goals and four fouls for 
total of 28 points. 
The lanky center started the scor- 
ing with a two-pointer and assisted 
materially in running the lead to 10 
to 4. After calling time the F. & M. 
team put on a Jittle rally of their 
own and cut the lead to 10-7, but Frey 
then resumed action. He netted an- 
other two-pointer then fed one to 
Ralph Billett. He then proceeded to 
un the score to 18-7. After another 
respite the Diplomats staged a sec- 
ond spree and brought the count to 
19-16. With Frey still pacing the at- 
tack the Dutchmen went to work and 
registered 13 consecutive points to 
lead 32-16. At half-time the Valley- 
ites held a 37-21 margin. 

At the start of the second half the 
visitors swept their hosts off their 
feet by tallying eight points in a 
matter of seconds. This seemed to 
take the heart right out of the Dip- 
lomats and the rest was rather easy. 
They did make a valiant effort to stay 
in the game but the necessary spark 
just was not there. The Metoxenmen 
withered a bit under the terrific pace 
but their lead was so great that it 
did not make any material difference. 

In the preliminary game the Frank- 
lin and Marshall yearlings made 
quick work of Coach Frock's Lebanon 
Valley Frosh team. Bob Davies, for- 
mer John Harris star, led his team to 
a 61-31 victory. Conley led the vis- 
itors attack with 10 points. Davies 
registered no less than 31 of his 
team's markers.

L.V. In Thick 
of Tight Race 
For Lead 



The Eastern Pennsylvania Collegi- 
ate League has reached the two- 
thirds mark and there are still three 
teams very much in the running, Leb- 
anon Valley, Gettysburg, and Muh- 
lenberg. Albright is still in the race 
mathematically, but it would take a 
miraculous series of upsets to enable 
them to finish on top. In one of the 
biggest upsets of the season Gettys- 
burg lost their position in first place 
when they were upset by Albright in 
Reading last Saturday by the slim 
margin of two points, 34-32. 

By the end of the week the race 
may be virtually decided. Victories 
for Lebanon Valley over both Gettys 
burg and Muhlenberg will assure the 
Dutchmen of no worse than a tie 
for the title. The Mules must abso- 
lutely beat Lebanon Valley on Satur- 
day night to stay in the running. 
Other games Saturday night are 
Drexel at Albright, and Ursinus at 
Gettysburg. Ursinus and Franklin 
and Marshall do battle in Lancaster 
on Friday night. The League stand-

of committee, although there is little 
doubt that the funds will be forth- 
coming. But there is plenty of doubt 
that any appreciable amount will be 
used to aid needy college students. 

NYA reports now being received 
here indicate your correspondent 
learns unofficially, that parents who 
have been able to keep sons and 
daughters in college by stinting and 
saving now, with the progress of the 
Recession, find, in many instances, 
that they cannot continue to main- 
tain their children in college without 
some outside help. The NYA is un- 
able to take up the burden where the 
parents are forced to leave off because 
cf lack of funds. And there is little 
chance that funds from the prospec- 
tive deficiency appropriation will be 
allotted for this purpose. 

There is a possibility that a small 
additional amount will be allocated to 
the NYA to inaugurate new work pro- 
jects for young people who are in 
need. The theory behind this is that 
young people who are faced with des- 
titution are more in need for Federal 
assistance than those who are forc- 
ed to curtail their college careers. 

Anyway, with the need for student 
aid growing greater daily, the NYA 
has no funds to meet the increased 
need. And informed individuals think 
that this agency will receive no sup- 
plemental funds, even though an ad- 
ditional $250,000,000 is appropriated 
for relief purposes. 



"My conception of a liberal educa- 
tion is the development and expan- 
sion of native intelligence," Lawrence

Central Railroad, speaks at DePauw 
University's conference on "Business 
and the Liberal Arts College."

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24. 1938 



I. R.C. Invites 
New Members 
To Join Work 

There has always been the greatest 
need for the study and interpretation 
of international atfairs, but never has 
the need been so expedient as at the 
present time. No one, whether col- 
lege student or ditch digger, can long 
remain indifferent to the events which 
blaze forth from the front pages of 
the newspapers of the world. Every- 
thing urges and presses for sane and 
intelligent solutions to the existing 
conditions. Ideas, with which the en- 
tire thinking world is now concerned 
and must be concerned, have to be 
clarified. 

Many students have not discovered 
how fascinating the study of inter- 
national relations may be. Such a 
study needn't be boresome or taxing, 
but stimulating and beneficial. Only 
three elements are essential in such 
a study: the facts of the affair, a 
brief, yet inclusive historical back- 
ground, and an unbiased mind to ac- 
cept the truth of the facts presented. 

In order to educate and enlighten 
students on the all important subject 
of foreign affairs, the International 
Relations Clubs were organized m 
universities, colleges, and normal 
schools for the discussion and study 
of international relations. The clubs 
were established under the auspices 
of the Carnegie Endowment for In- 
ternational Peace, of which Nicholas 
Murray Butler is president. Mr. But- 
ler states that the purpose of the 
Endowment "is not to support any 
single view as to how best to treat 
the conditions which now prevail 
throughout the world, but to fix the 
attention of students on those under- 
lying principles of international con- 
duct, of international law, and of 
international organization which must 
be agreed upon and applied if peace- 
ful civilization is to continue." 

The International Relations Clubs 
are steadily increasing in number and 
at the present time they number 
more than 700. Clubs are functioning 
under the guidance of the Carnegie 
Endowment in Australia, Canada, 
China, Great Britain and the United 
States, as well as in thirty other for- 
eign countries. 

Realizing the importance of a 
knowledge of international affairs 
and the necessity for a systematic 
study of the problems which are con- 
stantly confronting the American 
people, an International Relations 
Club was organized on October 25, 
1933, at Lebanon Valley College un- 
der the able supervision of Dr. E. H. 
Stevenson. 

The club has grown since then and 
at the present has a membership of 
25. Meeting two times each month, 
the club discusses the topics which 
are of current interest, such as the 
Sino-Japanese situation, the Spanish 
war, Italian and German affairs, as 
well as the part the United States 
plays in foreign affairs. 

f 

Monotony 

Now that you are gone, 
My life goes on the same, 
I read beside the fire, 
Or perhaps 1 play a game. 

I write a letter now and then 
To say I'm feeling fine, 
And sometimes I take a walk, 
Or drink a glass of wine. 

And then I say I miss you less 
As each day goes by, 
And the nights are not so long, 
Since I can no longer cry. 

Yes, life goes on the same, 
Now that you are gone, 
And I live from day to day, 
But my heart has lost its song. 



The College Swing Again 




PLAYMATES — Martha Raye and Ben Blue, eccentric playmates of 
the screen, are teamed once more in Paramount's "College Swing." 
Martha becomes a professor of practical romance and Ben be- 
comes a gymnasium instructor — and the things they do to college 
never were learned there. 




Like the title of her new Para- 
mount film, "College Swing," 
Betty Grable's chiffon dance dress 
is vibrant with youthful smart- 
ness. Violet velvet ribbon ties 
about the bodice and matches a 
cluster of violets.

next ten minutes, all by Frey. For 
the leaders Weems and O'Neill each 
scored four and Yevak and Hamilton 
two apiece. This made the count read 
Gettysburg, 24; Lebanon Valley, 11. 

O'Neill opened the second half with 
a two-pointer and Yovicsin followed 
with a foul. Artz retaliated with a 
field goal. A charity toss by Yovic- 
sin, a field goal by Billett, and an- 
other by Bommer ran the count to 
30-15. Two fouls by Weems, one by 
Rozman, and a two-pointer by Yo- 
vicsin ran the lead to eighteen, the 
longest lead enjoyed by the winners 
all evening. 

Field goals by Frey and Artz, and 
a charity toss by Rozman cut the ad- 
vantage to 13 points, but it was a 
losing cause. O'Neill completed Get- 
tysburg's scoring for the evening 
with two double deckers and a foul 
As a dying gesture Billett and Sei- 
verling netted shots from the field 

This victory restored Gettysburg 
to the leadership of the league with 
seven wins and two defeats. Leba- 
non Valley is now second with seven 
wins and three setbacks. The Bullets 
must still play Albright, Ursinus, 
and Franklin and Marshall, while the

Ad Paper 
Offer $500 
in Prizes 

ADVERTISING AGE, the national 
newspaper of advertising is offering

says on the subject of: "How Adver- 
tising Benefits the Consumer." 

The contest is divided into two

arate competition and separate prizes. 
The essays are limited to one thous- 
and words in length. 

All undergraduates, full-time stud- 
ents enrolled in colleges and univer- 
sities in the United States and Can- 
ada during the period from February 
1 to April 15, 1938, are eligible. 

The first prize consists of $250 in

34th annual convention of the Adver- 
tising Federation of America in De- 
troit, June 12-15, where the award

lisher of ADVERTISING AGE. 



Journalism School 
Takes New Course 

Reorganization of the Medill School 
of Journalism of Northwestern Uni- 
versity to make it what is reported 
the first school of its kind to be set 
up on a professional basis has been 
approved by the university's board 
of trustees. 

Approval was also given to estab- 
lishment of the Medill school as a sep- 
arate school of the University and 
appointment of the present director, 
Kenneth E. Olson, as dean. 

The new program will extend the 
period of training from four to five 
years and greatly increase the em- 
phasis on "background" studies in the 
social sciences. The first three years 
will be spent in general foundation 
courses; the last two, in more "spec- 
ialized" courses in the school of jour- 
nalism. 

"If schools of journalism have any 
justification for existence," says Dean 
Olson, "it is to provide the kind of 
educational background that a news- 
paper man needs, plus just enough of 
technical and professional courses to 
make their graduates immediately 
useful to their employers."

H-row Players 
to Give Candida 
in Engle Hall 

Jasper Deeter Company 
Returns to Lebanon Valley 
with Shaw Drama 

Everyone conversant with the af- 
fairs of the literary world has more 
than a nodding acquaintance with 
George Bernard Shaw's "CANDIDA" 
which the Hedgerow Theatre Com- 
pany will play at Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege on March 10 in Engle Hall. 

Critical men of letters have been 
calling "CANDIDA" the "perfect 
modern play" for twenty years and 
every actress of repute includes it in 
her repertoire some time during her 
career, but notwithstanding "CAN- 
DIDA'S" forty years of Provincial 
and American success, the West End 
of London first saw the play only in 
January of 1937, when the title role 
was played by an American actress, 
Ann Harding, whose debut in the part 
occurred twelve years before at 
Hedgerow in that company's famous 
old-mill playhouse in Moylan-Rose 
Valie>, Pennsylvania. 

Subtitled a "mystery," "CANDIDA" 
has mystified would-be interpreters 
of its leading roie without number; 
and Mr. Shaw, known for his biting 
criticism of productions of his plays, 
gives only one clue. Love, he explains, 
dictates "Candida's" choice between 
the poet, Marchbanks, and her preach- 
er-husband. A mellow comedy, "Can- 
dida" tells the story of poetic fancy 
as it appears in a preacher and a 
poet whose divergent dreams, unreal- 
ized, threaten to make them mortal 
enemies. The resolution of this con-

Sixteenth Formal 
Held by Delphian 

The Sixteenth Anniversary dance 
of Delta Lambda Simga Literary So 
ciety was held Saturday, February 
26, from 8 to 11 o'clock in the ball- 
room of the Harrisburg Civic Club 
Al Shirey and his orchestra furnish- 
ed swing music for the dancers and 
a choice bit of entertainment which 
included vocal selections by a young 
virtuoso known as the "Bobby Breen 
of Pennsylvania." The highlight of 
the evening was a "Big Apple" dance 
led by Joe Thomas. 

Approximately fifty couples at 
tended including the regular mem 
bers and their escorts, and a num- 
ber of alumni members including Ro- 
maine Stiles, Sara Lupton, Cordelia 
Schaeffer, and Louise Bishop. 

In the receiving line were the cha- 
perones, President and Mrs. C. A. 
Lynch, Dr. and Mrs. M. L. Stokes, 
Dr. and Mrs. G. A. Richie, Professor 
and Mrs. D. C. Carmean, Dr. and 
Mrs. S. H. Derickson, Miss Mary Gil- 
lespie, and Professor and Mrs. Amos 
H. Black, with Ella Mason, anniver- 
sary president, her escort, Benny 
Goodman, Agnes Morris, opening 
president, and Robert Tschopp. 



Recruits Sponsor 
Three Delegations 

Three deputations were conducted 
last Sunday evening by the Life Work 
Recruits. One group went to the 
Trinity Methodist Church of Harris- 
burg, Pa. Daniel Shearer delivered 
the message for the evening service. 
He was assisted by Alice Richie, 
who officiated for the service. The 
music was furnished by John Zettle- 
moyer, violinist, and Dorothy Yeakel, 
pianist. This deputation was arrang- 
ed by Barbara Sloane, who is a mem- 
ber of this congregation. 

Another service was presented at 
the Pine Grove United Brethren 
Church. During the Christian En- 
deavor meeting Bradford Long gave 
an interesting talk. For the evening 
worship service Carl Ehrhartwas the 
speaker. 

The final deputation was at the 
United Brethren Church, of Birdsboro, 
Pa. Paul Slonaker was the speaker 
and was assisted by special numbers 
furnished by Esther Wise, soloist and 
Lucy Cook, pianist. 



Conserve Presents 
Student Recital 

Tuesday evening again brought 
with it a recital, which began at 8:00 
o'clock, the customary time for Tues- 
day night student recitals. Harry 
Drendall, a freshman conservatory 
student who thows a great deal of 
promise, opened the program by play- 
ing the first movem tat of Mozart So- 
nata No. 10. Jeanne Shock, soprano, 
then made her first appearance on 
the program singing "The Bird of the 
Wilderness," Horsman, and "I Came 
with a Song," by Frank La Forge. 
"Toccato and Fugue in D Minor," by 
Bach, was rendered by Amy Mein- 
hardt at the piano, and John Zettle- 
moyer, followed with three violin se- 
lections, "Deutscher Tanz, D Major" 
Mozart-Burmester, "Air for the G 
String," Fiorillo-Vidas, and "Mazur- 
ka," by Haesche. Jeanne Schock then 
sang "Sanctuary" also by La Forge, 
and "Love's on the High Road," by 
Rodgers. The program was conclud- 
ed by Robert Clippinger at the or- 
gan playing Cesar Franck's "Prelude, 
Fugue, Variation."

In the recent election of the Del- 
phian Literary Society, Ernestine 
Jagnesak, popular senior, was award-

Classes in Harrisburg- 
and Annville Show no 
Decrease in Enrollment 

The Extension Department of the 
College has shown a very consider- 
able increase in income and attend- 
ance this year over the past few 
years. For the first time in many 
years, if not in the experience of the 
Jollege, there was no decrease in en- 
rollment or income the second semes- 
ter. 

The increase in attendance may be 
explained, in part, by the fact that no 
longer are the classes made up solely 
of teachers qualifying for a degree or 
seeking additional credits. Many of 
the students in the classes are nurses 
and employees of various State De- 
partments. The trend appears to be 
a growth in the demand for adult ed- 
ucation. In other words, more and 
more adults are seeking college 
courses without the thought of seek- 
ing sufficient credits for a degree. 

At the present time there are four 
extension classes being carried on in 
Harrisburg and nine evening classes 
in Annville. The evening classes are 
usually somewhat smaller but offer 
residence credit. The same quality of 
work is given in extension and evening 
clast.es as in the regular college work. 
Students who take work in these 
classes for credit are charged $8 per 
credit hour. This is approximately 
comparable to regular college tuition. 
Students who wish no credit and take 
no examinations are charged $5 per 
credit hour. The latter are classed as 
'auditors." 

At the present time there is a to-

Date ol Recital 
Set for Tonight 

The Conservatory of Music will 
present another in its series of Stu- 
dio recitals tonight at seven o'clock 
in the chapel. 

Piano numbers will be presented 
by Mary Ann Cotroneo and Verna 
Schlosser. Margaret Bordwell will 
give voice selections. Luther Immler 
and John Miller will also appear. 



Grad Experiments 
on Trout Breeding 

Poultrymen and farmers for some 
time have been acquainted with the 
method of artificial and controlled 
lighting in order to prolong the lay- 
ing day and increase production. 
However, the first to apply a similar 
principle to trout is Earl Hoover, a 
graduate of Lebanon Valley, and at 
present a member of the New Hamp- 
shire Fish and Game Department. 

The purpose of Hoover's experi- 
ments was to shorten the ordinary 
spawning cycle of the trout, result- 
ing in a saving of time and cost in 
getting the young trout into streams. 
To do this the day of the breeding 
trout was lengthened by the use of 
artificial lights over the aquarium af- 
ter the daylight of the short winter 
day had faded. Thus breeding days 
were produced equal to mid-summer 
days in length. 

Then the day was gradually short- 
ened by turning off the artificial 
lighting a bit sooner each day, thus 
reproducing autumnal conditions. The 
result was that the trout responded 
as they ordinarily do in the fall un- 
der natural conditions. The females 
produced ripe eggs, while the males 
were ready with an adequate supply 
of milt. 

A reprint of Hoover's outstanding 
work appeared recently in the Read- 
er's Digest. 



Honor Society 
Elects Eleven 
to Membership 

Scholastic Honor Society 

Announces Results 

of Membership Election 

Eleven Seniors, four men and seven 
women, were elected to membership 
in Phi Alpha Epsilon, scholastic hon- 
or society of Lebanon Valley College, 
at the faculty meeting of Tuesday, 
March 1. 

This number represents the largest 
group to be accorded this honor. 
However, it is consistent with the 
large percentage of honor students 
that have annually come from the 
present senior class. 

Each individual chosen will be no- 
tified of his election in the near fu- 
ture by personal letter. Plans for the 
annual banquet and other affairs 
have not been made as yet. 

The list of persons chosen, and 
their respective averages of three and 
one-half years, follows in the order 
of their standing. 

Violette Hoerner, 94.29; Theresa 
Stefan, 93.45; Jean McKeag, 93.02; 
Hazel Heminway, 92.57; Boyd Shaf- 
fer, 91.63; Wanda Price, 91.29; Ethei 
Houtz, 90.12; Elizabeth Bender, 
89.81; Clifford Barnhart, 89.79; Her- 
man Ellenberger, 88.73; Curvin Del- 
linger, 88.36. 

Phi Alpha Epsilon was established 
in 1935 at Lebanon Valley College. 
Any student maintaining an average 
of 88% or better is eligible to mem- 
bership. This average is computed 
upon the basis of the first seven se- 
mesters, the last half-year being nec- 
essarily omitted. 



Alumnus Appointed 
to Post with Ward's 

Dr. Robert E. Raudabush, a grad- 
uate of Lebanon Valley College, has 
just accepted a position with Ward's 
Natural Science Establishment, Inc., 
of Rochester, New York, as head of 
the department of Microscope Slides. 
This concern supplies natural science 
materials for educational institutions. 

Dr. Raudabush's father, a teacher 
at Minersville, is a trustee of Leba- 
non Valley College. While at Leba- 
non Valley, Dr. Raudabush majored 
in biology, spending much time stu- 
dying the hydra in particular. Grad- 
uating in 1931, he entered Iowa State 
College as teaching fellow in the De- 
partment of Zoology and Entomology. 
He received his Master's degree in 
1932. During 1933 and 1934 Dr. Rau- 
dabush acted as department techni- 
cian and in 1934 was appointed in- 
structor. He obtained a Ph.D. degree 
in 1936. 

The author of numerous papers, 
mainly in the field of parasitology, 
Dr. Raudabush has a comprehensive 
knowledge of blood parasites and coc- 
cida. His experience, however, is 
much broader in scope, including 
teaching in zoology and embryology, 
and the preparation of slides cover- 
ing a wide range of subjects. 

Ward's have the reputation for em- 
ploying department heads of very 
high calibre.

These criticisms are made in all 
good will, and without resentment 
to the author of the article to 
which they are directed. Their ob- 
ject is to bring about a better un- 
derstanding and a more Christian 
attitude toward those people in 
Africa whom we are trying to help. 

C. 0. GOODMAN 




in accordance 
with our policy 1 

_ expressed several weeks ago in this 
column, we desire to make a proper ad- 
justment of a rather serious case of re- 
cent negligence on the part of one of 
our reporters. We feel that any attempt 
on our part to clarify the situation could 
not be presented as effectively as the 
person in question puts the case himself. 
It is with this thought in mind that we 
present his letter: 

To the Editor of La Vie Collegienne: 

In reading the February 17 issue of 
La Vie Collegienne I was very much 
surprised to see an article concerning an 
interview which one of your reporters 
supposedly had with me. According to 
my knowledge, I was not interviewed by 
any La Vie reporter as such. Knowing 
that for the sake of variety and interest 
in your paper, it is sometimes permis- 
sible to quote informal statements as 
interviews, I would not ordinarily have 
had any quarrel whatsoever with this 
liberty. When, however, your reporter 
prints as mine statements which are far- 
fetched, erroneous, or opposite to my 
opinion, I feel it my duty to notify you 
of the fact. 

In the first place, I do not recall mak- 
ing any reference to cannibalism while I 
was on the campus. In the short time I 
had in Africa, it would be presumptuous 
of me to make generalizations concern- 
ing Sierra Leone, much less the whole 
continent. While in Africa, I did not 
come in contact with the belief that the 
eating of human flesh will cure certain 
illnesses. Far too sweeping, also, is the 
following statement: "On the whole, 
however, the inroads of civilization have 
erased almost all traces of the pristine 
mores of the continent." If you don't be- 
lieve that's exaggerated, ask Solomon 
Caulker. 

The last paragraph of the article is 
mainly the part which lead me to write 
this letter. Let me quote it: 

"Therefore the work of the mission- 
ary is today more important than ever 
because now Africa must face problems 
which can be solved only in the far- 
sighted manner which is impossible to 
native vision." 

Here- is revealed just the attitude 
which I tried to counteract, both in my 
message in the college church and in 
my chapel talk— the attitude of super- 
iority which so many people assume 
when thinking of Africa. I would be the 
last one to say that Africans are un- 
able to solve their own problems. The 
task of the missionary is not to solve 
the problems of the Africans, but to give 
the.m the equipment and the training 
which will enable them to solve their 
own problems. 



BEYONDi^CftMPUS 

Now that you are all nicely set- 
tled in your dormitory room and 
have been attending classes for at 
least five months this school year, 
we are giving you a gentle jolt 
from an educating easterner that 
maybe it's all a waste of time. 

Simmons College's president is 
a jolter, and here's the jolt: "Don't 

assume that your life is 

blighted - if (you don't) go 

to college." But, if you're already 
there, says he, "college work should 
be above all, an intellectual exper- 
ience." 

* * * * 

But before this gets you down in 
the dumps too far, we'd like to in- 
troduce you to the University of 
Washington's Dr. E. R. Guthrie, 
who's been doing research on the 
"Big Apple"— of all things! Sez he: 

"The popularity of the Big Ap- 
ple in America indicates a red- 
blooded race above all, and it is 
probable that such a dance could 
not have originated in any other 
nation which is considered civiliz- 
ed." 

Go ahead! You've a logical ex- 
cuse now for saying your collegian- 
tics are just a part of a program 
to determine how dates should be 
secured. 

* * * * 

As long as we're on research, 
you'll be interested in this bit from 
the University of Oklahoma's wo- 
men's counselor: "The popular 
opinion is that the university is so- 
ciety mad. But the fact is the 
girls who have three or four dates 
a week are isolated cases." 

See! This kind of research really 
does seem to be wanted. 




Commuter 
Corner 



Representative Randolph of West 
Virginia. This proposed legisla- 
tion would appropriate $2,200,000 
a year for two years to be used 
in cooperation with the States in 
developing public forum demon- 
stration centers. 

Another bill before the House 
Committee on Education is that 
of Representative Coffee of Wash- 
ington. This bill would create a 
permanent Federal Bureau of 
Fine Arts, which would perpetu- 
ate the present efforts of the Fed- 
eral Art Projects of the Works 
Progress Administration. 

The objective sought by this 
legislation, as pointed out in a 
lengthy preamble, is the bringing 
to all of the people of cultural ad- 
vantages which, up to the time of 
the establishment of the Federal 
Arts Projects, were confined to 
small groups. 



Under the terms of Mr. Coffee's 
bill, the Bureau of Fine Arts 
would consist of a Commissioner, 
appointed by the President, and 
six commission members named 
by the Commissioner. 

The nation would be divided in- 
to regions, according to the pro- 
visions of the bill, and there would 
be regional committees of six 
members to carry the act into ef- 
fect in different parts of the coun- 
try. 

The arts which would be includ- 
ed in the Bureau of Fine Arts 
are: (1) the theatre and its allied 
arts; (2) the dance and its allied 
arts; (3) music and its allied 
arts; (4) Literature and its allied 
arts; (5) the graphic and plastic 
arts and their allied arts; and (6) 
architecture and decoration and 
their allied arts. 



A Day Student Column 

Our most profound apologies f 0r 
the crack about a "certain beauteous 
senior" which appeared in last week's 
column. Not our opinion, but that of 
a friend, and most commuters disa- 
gree. . . . 

In re the Hop last week-end. Bun- 
ny and Sam ought to go in for adagio 
dancing. It's about the only thing 
they haven't tried yet, and we hear 
that it brings the dough rolling i n , 
And you know, we wanted it away 
from the campus, so what do some 
of us do but come down to Grimm's 
during intermission! 

More on the cat question. Valen- 
tine's week there was the dearest (?) 
little kitten in the girl day-student's 
room. Some kind-hearted souls went 
out and bought it some milk; one 
Adele Black climbed on a chair and 
screamed. Amazon ! ! ! 

Cora, could you or Jack or 'Dolf 
tell us some good ice breakers, please? 
Was cold enough the first of this 
week, though. . . . 

One Stanley Deck did arouse the 
righteous wrath of his lady love Mon- 
day evening. Ask him why. . . . 

For Math students: Given — one 
sheet of ruled paper. To prove— that 
a sheet of paper is a lazy dog. Solu- 
tion will be given next week. 

Column's end, fellow-commuters. 
Please do not murder me for any re- 
marks in this column. It's all in the 
interests of journalism, you know. 



At Washington 

Washington, D. C— Some inter- 
esting trends in education are sug- 
gested by bills that are now be- 
fore Congress. 

The so-called American Youth 
Act is still before the House Com- 
mittee on Education awaiting ac- 
tion. This legislation, it will be 
recalled, would appropriate $500,- 
000,000 for the aid of young peo- 
ple both in and out of schools and 
colleges. Congressional leaders, 
however, think that this bill has 
little chance of passing the House 
or Senate in the near future, and 
certainly no chance of being en- 
acted into law. 

Representative Clason of Massa- 
chusetts has introduced a bill 
which would establish a Federal 
Youth Service to aid youths who 
have finished school. 

If this legislation were enacted 
into law, information centers 
would be established in the various 
states to aid in collecting and dis- 
seminating data relating to "oc- 
cupational possibilities" of post- 
school youth under 30 years of 
age. Placement services would be 
made available to young people. 

This bill, too, awaits action by 
the House Committee on Educa- 
tion. 

Adult education, which has 
made such rapid strides within the 
past few years, would be further 
advanced by a bill presented by

Down Broadway 

There have been many stories at- 
tendant to the break-up of athletic 
relations between Harvard and 
Princeton some years ago, but the 
best was recounted to us the other 
day by Harold McCracken, motion 
picture photographer. 

"Shortly after the schism," recalls 
McCracken, "a group of Princeton 
grads were discussing the matter at 
an impromptu party in their New 
York club. One of them quite em- 
phatically asserted that they should 
make a mass attack on the Harvard 
Club and throw the occupants out in- 
to Forty-fourth Street. The others 
readily agreed, but as time (and 
drinks) passed, no one made a move. 
Finally, the instigator announced in 
a loud voice that the rest were just 
softies, and that he was going, » 
necessary alone, to clean out the en- 
emy's camp. 

"Arriving at the Harvard Club,n 
strode into the spacious lounge, hu 
as it was rather late by then, no one 
was in evidence. Thte dining room v/as 
also empty. Out in the barroom stoo 
a lone individual, in hat and ovei 
coat. Marching into battle like » 
soldier he was, the Princetonian »_ 
tacked and by the time attendan 
rushed in, his adversary was a a ^ 
tered heap on the Harvard barroo 
floor. a ,jy 

"When the Princeton man n»* ^

With only two games to go it be- 
comes evident that Raymie Frey will 
undoubtedly break the 200 mark in 
gcor ing this season. Right now he 
has 193, including all the games, and 
nly a g rave disaster can stop his 
attaining the two-century mark. 
p a lph Billett and Bobby Artz have 
both broken the 100 mark and have

constitutes one of the finest records 
in the history of the school and one

What's this we hear about "Dog- 
gie" Julian hugging the officials 
before the game last Saturday? It 
did not seem to do him much good 
anyway, especially that time when 
Tony Rozman rudely pushed his 
opponent into the stands then was 
allowed to shoot the foul himself. 
That break may have been against 
the Mules oft-heard coach, but in 
the long run the breaks about even- 
ed up. "The Dog" really gave the 
officials a piece of his mind after 
the battle. Poor "Doggie," the 
whole world seems to be against 
him. 

• 

This week finds all the teams but 
Gettysburg and Franklin and Marshall 
winding up their league schedules un- 
less a play-off happens to be neces- 
sary to determine the champs. The 
above-mentioned teams play the fin- 
ale at Lancaster a week from Satur- 
day. This Ursinus team surely is an 
enigma. They scored real victories 
over the two leading teams, Gettys- 
burg and Lebanon Valley, then turn- 
ed around and provided Drexel with 
its only win this league campaign. 

• 

We cannot help but feel that this 
season the playing as a whole is 
the best in the history of the East- 
ern Pennsylvania Conference. Get- 
tysburg has a defense that is al- 
most impenetrable, and our own 
Valleyites have displayed an of- 
fensive style that is lightning fast. 
Muhlenberg, too, has displayed a 
fine brand of ball and has done 
very well in non-league games 
against outstanding teams of this 
state. Albright and Ursinus have 
both shown flashes of brilliance, 
leaving only Franklin and Mar- 
shall and Drexel with below-par 
teams. 



Eugene Shenk, the tennis manager 
ls busy working on a tennis schedule 
* 0r the netsters this spring. At 
Resent he has eleven matches ar 
ranged and expects to add several 
m °re. The difficulty is that all the 
batches must be played in the space 
of about four weeks. The schedule 
Vlll be released for publication in a 
lew weeks. Four of last spring's reg- 
Ular s, Stewie Shapiro, Jake Umber- 
j> er > Art Evelev and Shenk will again 
e available for competition. The oth- 
er two positions are open to anybody 
demonstrates that he is a real 
ten *iis player. 



Mules Downed! 
by Dutchmen 
in Wild Game 

In one of the fastest and most 
thrilling games of the season Leba- 
non's Valley's high scoring team out- 
scored a stubborn Muhlenberg team 
64-61, last Saturday night in the Al- 
lentown High School gymnasium. It 
was truly a trackmeet, both teams 
dashing up and down the floor as fast 
as their legs could carry them and 
most sallies resulting in scores. So 
determined were "Doggie" Julian's 
boys to win that they reduced a Leb- 
anon Valley 21 point lead to two 
points in about ten minutes, only to 
lose when Bob Artz sank a pair of 
life-saving fields goals in the dying 
minutes of the game. 

No less than 59 of the Dutchmen's 
64 points were registered by three 
men, Artz having 21, Frey 20, and 
Billett 18. In the first half Artz and 
Billett were especially accurate with 
14 apiece, while Frey stole the show 
in the closing half. It must be said 
in defense of the other performers, 
Kress, Brown and Rozman, that 
while they did not score many points 
they did play fine floor games and 
contributed greatly to the victory 
by acting as feeders for the other 
three. For Muhlenberg Schappell's 
long set shots and McKee's follow- 
ups featured. 

Schappell opened the game with a 
field goal, but this was the last time 
the homesters led all evening. Three 
field goals by Artz and one by Frey 
put Valley ahead 8-2. With Billett 
and Artz carrying the brunt of the 
attack the lead was stretched to 17 
points at one time, but the Mules cut 
it down to 37-26 at half time. 

After the intermission Sewards 
and McKee made good on free throws 
and then the Blue and White attack 
began to function in earnest. Frey 
tallied three goals in quick succession 
then Artz contributed one only to 
have Frey come back with another. 
Frey and Billett collaborated to run 
the lead to 18 points, the count read- 
ing Lebanon Valley 50, Muhlenberg 
32. At this point the Mules took a 
new lease on life and staged a sen- 
sational rally which just fell short 
of tying the game. A remarkable 
display of set shooting and following 
up continued almost unabated until 
the final whistle. The Mules brought 
the count up to 60-58, but then Artz 
netted a two-pointer to extend the 
lead. McKee converted a free throw 
to make the score 62-59, then Artz 
came through again. As a final ges- 
ture, the Julianmen did score anoth- 
er field goal to end the encounter at 
64-61. 

Throughout the game the large 
majority of the more than 2,000 spec- 
tators focused their attention on the 
league's leading scorer, Raymie Frey. 
In the first half he was somewhat 
eclipsed by Billett and Artz, but in 
the second half he was all the crowd 
expected him to be and more.

Handball Tourney 
Draws to Close 

The final stages of a handball tour- 
nament started several weeks ago un- 
der the direction of Eugene Shenk 
are now being reached. As this was 
written three contestants had reach- 
ed the semi-finals and the other 
bracket was about to be filled. In 
the lower half of the draw Jake Um- 
berger and Fred Huber will fight it 
out for the right to enter the finals. 

In the upper bracket "Sonny" 
Smith has gained the semi-final 
round and is waiting to play the win- 
ner of the Henry Sehott-Cliff Barn- 
hart match. The winner of that 
match will enter the finals. There 
have been a number of hotly contest- 
ed matches in all the rounds.

tal of sixty students registered in 
these departments, practically all of 
which are taking two or more courses. 
As the curriculum is arranged it is 
possible for a student seeking a de- 
gree to secure a degree by taking eve- 
ning and extension and summer 
school courses since the courses rotate 
from year to year and a student can 
secure the necessary requirements and 
at the same time the necessary resi- 
dence credit by taking courses on the 
campus. 

This part year the department in- 
stituted some three credit courses in 
both extension and summer school 
work. Hitherto all courses were, with 
the exception of the language courses, 
two ci*edit courses. This develop- 
ment appears to be popular as the 
largest attendance is in the three 
credit courses. There is a distinct 
possibility that more of this will be 
done in the future. In the case of the 
language courses these are three 
semester hour courses. In the Sum- 
mer School a whole year of a lan- 
guage is offered. Students taking- 
such courses in the summer take the 
work three hours a day, five days a 
week for a six week period. It is much 
more intensive work than that offer- 
ed during the regular college year. 

The Director of the Summer School 
announces that the preliminary an- 
nouncement of summer school courses 
has been sent out to a mailing list of 
about four thousand prospective stu 
dents. The Summer School Bulletin is 
about ready to go to press. In this 
bulletin will be included all evening 
and extension courses which will be 
offered next year in Annville and Har- 
risburg. Approximately fifty differ- 
ent courses are listed in the Summer 
School Bulletin. 



Dickinson to Hold 
Play Day Saturday 

Although all of Lebanon Valley's 
teams were defeated in the three bas- 
ketball games played with Cedar 
Crest College last Saturday in the 
Annville High School gymnasium, 
the girls played the perfect hostess 
by displaying a fine spirit of friend- 
liness and sportsmanship. The Jun- 
ior-Senior class team showed the 
most skill, but lost by a score of 50- 
38. The Sophomores were" defeated 
by Cedar Crest with a final score of 
16-41. The Freshmen lost with only 
6 points as against the visitors' 41. 

Next Saturday, March 5, eight of 
Lebanon Valley's basketball players 
will travel to Dickinson College to en- 
gage in a Play Day. Representatives 
from Bucknell, Wilson, Gettysburg, 
and Susquehanna will also be pres- 
ent. The morning will be spent in 
basketball and the afternoon in swim- 
ming. Since this is the first time that 
Lebanon Valley has received an invi- 
tation of this kind, the girls are look- 
ing forward to the event with great 
anticipation. 

The class basketball tournament is 
still in progress with the Sophomore 
team and Junior-Senior team on top. 
Games will be continued until the 
winner is decided.

L.V. Debaters 
Drop Contests 
to Dickinson 

Visiting Upsala Team 
Loses to L. V. Negative 
on Audience Decision 

A strong Dickinson negative team 
defeated the Lebanon Vailey men's 
arnrmative combination m a decision 
uebate in fhiio Hail on Tuesday ev- 
ening. Dickinson was represented by 
John hunting and Duitey Riveley, 
while Chtforu Barnhart and (Jalvin 
Spitler argued for Lebanon Valley. 

According to the opinions express- 
ed by the judges after the contest 
was concluded, the debate was lost 
by the athrmative due to the vague- 
ness and extent of the case they tried 
vo defend, and their liberal interpre- 
tation of the term "arbitration" and 
the comparatively narrow restriction 
upon the term "industrial dispute.' 

An informal discussion followed 
the debate, in which the judges, the 
debaters, and the chairman of the 
evening, Dr. M. L. Stokes, took part. 
The exchange of opinions was help- 
lul in clarifying issues and in ob- 
taining different personal reactions 
and viewpoints. 

Judges for the debates were Earl 
A. brubaker, district attorney 01 
Lebanon County, Professor Rufus K. 
.hi by, coach of debate of Hershey 
High School, and the Rev. J. F. Pat- 
terson, pastor of St. Paul's Evangeli- 
cal Lutheran Church of Annville. Dr. 
M. L. Stokes presided and introduced 
the judges. 

The Lebanon Valley negative team 
of Curvin Dellinger and Raymond 
Smith journeyed to Dickinson and re- 
ceived the short end of a two-to-one 
judges' decision in their contest with 
the Dickinson affirmative team. 

On Tuesday evening Lebanon Val- 
ley's negative, called out unexpected- 
ly, defeated an affirmative team from 
upsala College by a close audience 
uecision. Dr. H. H. Shenk presided 
over this debate.

I. R. Ct Discusses 
Current trends 

A most interesting meeting of the 
International Relations Club was held 
at the home of the adviser, Dr. Eu- 
gene H. Stevenson, on Thursday ev- 
ening, February 24. After a brief 
business period Gordon Streeter pre- 
sented a report on Cordell Hull's for- 
eign policy. Streeter pointed out the 
trends of the United States toward 
economic nationalism, as well as the 
reciprocal trade agreements favored 
by Hull. Charles Raab discussed the 
major current events of the past 
weeks. 

The semi-annual installment of 
books given to the club by the Car- 
negie Endowment for International 
Peace were presented by Dr. Steven- 
son. Among the books which will be 
placed on the I. R. C. shelf in the 
library is the following: 

Is America Afraid? by Livingston 
Hartley. 

In this book the author demands a 
constructive foreign policy. In the 
very beginning the author states that 
his policy is built on the theory that 
foreign policy is not entirely eco- 
nomic — that the most dynamic forces 
operating abroad today appear to be 
more political than economic. The 
book explains the rise of the differ- 
ent systems of government and shows 
how America can use its undisputed 
preeminence to insure its own last- 
ing peace. It will not be accepted by 
imperialists, but will be warmly ac- 
cepted by all those with a sense of 
justice and national liberty. 



Glee tiiub Gives 
Local Concert 

The second concert in this vicinity 
since the return from the ten-day 
tour, was given by the college Glee 
Club on Monday evening at the Cen- 
tenary Methodist Church, Lebanon. 
Previous to this, the club had ap- 
peared at the Reformed Church in 
Palmyra. Both concerts were partic- 
ularly well attended, and well re- 
ceived. 

On March 10, the club will appear 
in Hummelstown, and on March 15, 
m Penbrook. 

The Glee Club and Band are plan- 
ning to give a combined concert in 
ivmiers Durg at some date after the 
Easter vacation. 



b . S. C. Establishes 
l»ew f oundation 

A national shrine for the study oi 
science and religion and for the 
training of modern youth in these 
two courses has been established here 
at Florida Southern College. 

The E. Stanley Jones Educational 
Foundation, as it will be called, is 
named after the famed missionary to 
India, the man who conceived the idea 
of the new study center. 

The structure which will house the 
loundation will contain five religious 
departments, scientific laboratories, a 
library, an auditorium, administra- 
tive offices and classrooms.

H-row Theater 
Has Varied, 
Stormy Career 

Time: 1923, Spring. Place: A 
chautauqua tent at Swarthmore. A 
group of actors from New York's 
Provincetown Playhouse had been en- 
gaged to play a sixteen- week season. 
On the notice-board: what looked like 
a violation of contract . . . instruc- 
tions that the company was to give 
a dramatization of the Book of Job 
on Sunday evenings. 

In the role of Job was to be the 
company manager, Jasper Deeter, a 
young man who had made a name for 
himself on Broadway. He looked at 
some of Job's speeches, and walked 
out. In his pocket, nine dollars. A 
stroll along the quiet Pennsylvania 
roads, and he drew up in front of an 
old stone building in Rose Valley. It 
might once have been a mill. He 
looked in. Cobwebs, dust, some bench- 
es, and at the far end a stage. 

Renting the building was an easy 
business. Actors, scenery, lights, and 
"props" were gathered from among 
the local residents, and the first pro- 
duction on April 21st, was Shaw's 
•'Candida." Later came "Inheritors;" 
then "Androcles and the Lion." Ear- 
ly presentations were labeled "Jasper 
Deeter presents . . . ," and in the fall 
of 1923 came the name "Hedgerow." 

The company grew. Actors came 
from New York to spend a summer 
doing the plays they liked to do, in 
the way they liked to do them. In 
the fall they would return to Broad- 
way for job-hunting. But September 
found them unwilling to leave. Here 
was the life they had dreamed; per- 
haps it could continue through the 
winter. 

So with nine dollars, no organiza- 
tion, no intention of permanence, 
Hedgerow was started. Receipts at 
the box-office during the summer 
months were adequate; the winters 
were difficult, but the group stuck 
together. Rather than see a fine play 
dropped, the players tried alternat- 
ing performances, and so the reper- 
tory system was instituted at the 
start. 

The company at the beginning 
numbered three. A year later it in- 
cluded Ann Harding, Morris Carnov- 
sky, Allyn Joslyn, and Eva Le Galli- 
enne, who was a temporary guest. 
The number of plays had jumped to 
twenty-one, and in Philadelphia and 
surrounding territory there was a 
growing audience to encourage the 
company toward building the only 
permanent repertory theatre in the 
country.

Gettysburg Slated 
to Win League 

By virtue of a 37-26 victory over 
Albright Mon. night the Gettysburg 
Bullets have clinched at least a tie 
for the 1938 Eastern Pennsylvania 
Collegiate Basketball League. TheG 
burgers still must play F. and M. at 
Lancaster next week, but even if they 
lose that game the worst they can get 
is a tie for the title. The only team 
that can tie them is Lebanon Valley, 
and to do this the Dutchmen must 
beat Albright this Saturday. 

Lebanon Valley on the other hand 
can get no worse than a tie for sec- 
ond place, since they have lost only 
three with one more to play, while 
the third place Muhlenberg team has 
already lost four. The League stand-

Treo and Flom Take Laurels 
in Deutsche Verein Production 



Excellent Staging Done 
by Shearer and Horn; 
Congratulations to Spohn 



By George G. Struble 

On the evening of March 2 the lo- 
cal Gelehrten were treated to a one 
act play in German called "Einer 
Muss Heiraten." In spite of advance 
rumors that the play dealt with what 
is hereabouts known as a "military 
wedding," and in spite of some diffi- 
culties with the lighting system, the 
piece proved to be clean-cut, whole- 
some fun, and vastly entertaining. 
To members of the German Club, who 
produced the play, and to Mr. Robert 
Spohn, their very capable director, 
our warmest congratulations. 

Although the story itself was a tri- 
fling affair, it served as the vehicle 
for some excellent spoofing, and out- 
actors very nearly made the most of 
the amusing situations afforded. 

Two professional brothers, played 
by William Clark and Calvin Spitler, 
have long fought shy of matrimony, 
but now Tante Gertrude (Esther 
Flom), tired of tidying up for them, 
reminds them of their father's will, 
according to which "einer muss heir- 
aten." The brothers argue as to 
which one shall marry and finally 
draw lots. The fateful slip is drawn 
by the elder brother (Mr. Spitler), 
who, unlike Jephthah's daughter, does 
not bewail his loveless estate. Quite 
the contrary. He does, however, be- 
wail his lack of technique and ap 
peals to Jacob (Mr. Clark), who 
agrees to woo, John Alden-fashion, 
the fair Luise for him. The ending 
is doubly happy in that in this case 
all parties are satisfied. 

Miss Marianne Treo is to be com 
wended for her charming presenta- 
tion of Luise, a difficult role to play 
since she must strike the right bal- 
ance between determination and coy- 
ness, concealed aggressiveness and 
demure reticence. Here of course one 
m ust speak of the lovely stage set 
designed by Mr. Spohn and executed 
by Messrs. Paul Horn and Daniel 
Shearer. It is perhaps too much to 
Sa y that the set enhanced Miss Treo's 
^veliness, since that were not possi- 
ble; but we can ^ay sincerely that 
Miss Treo added the finishing touch 

(Continued on Page 3, Column 3)

We hate to disagree with a contributor, especially when he happens to 
be Herr Struble. But we find no evidence of Mr. Spitler's "lack 
of technique" in this candid camera shot.

Campus Honors 
Mothers over 
This Weekend 



During this coming week end, 
March 12 and 13, a large number of, 
mothers of Lebanon Valley women 
students are expected to be on our 
campus for the annual celebration of 
Mothers' Week-end sponsored by the 
Y. W. C. A. Elaborate plans are be- 
ing made to fill both days with plen- 
ty of entertainment and excitement, 
so that every mother will be pleased 
with her daughter's surroundings at 
college. 



The activities will begin on Satur- 
day at 2:30 P. M. when a program 
will be given in Engle Hall. Miss 
Gillespie will open the program with 
an address of welcome following 
which Anita Patschke and Robert 
Smith will play a piano and organ 
duet. A girls' trio consisting of 
Helen Butterwick, Beatrice Fink, and 
Christine Yoder will sing, after which 
Mary Grace Longenecker will ren- 
der a cornet solo. A soprano solo 
will be sung by Jean Marbarger af- 
ter which Emily Kindt, Marian Reift* 
and Robert Smith will offer a selec- 
tion on marimba, piano and organ. 
The Women's Physical Education De- 
partment will next be represented by 
a group of Freshmen girls in several 
folk dances which will be followed 
by a character clog dance, Old Gray 
Mare, performed by a group of Soph- 
omore girls. The dancing will con- 
clude with Louise Saylor, Jean Meyer, 
and Ruth Hershey in Polish Flirta- 
tion. The program will close with se- 
lections by the Girls' Band. 

The Mother and Daughter Banquet 
is scheduled for 5 o'clock on Satur- 
day evening. The dining hall will be' 
decorated appropriately for the oc- 
casion. Favors and name cards will 
be at each place at the tables. The 
program for the banquet will be 
opened by Lucille Maberry with an 
address of welcome. A piano solo by 
Jeanne Schock will be the second 
number after which a vocal trio com- 
posed of Irene Ranck, Virginia

Ehrhart Gets 
1940 "Quittie 
Editorship 

At a meeting of the sophomore 
class yesterday noon Carl Ehrhart 
was elected to the post of editor of 
the Class of 1940 Quittapahilla. At 
the same time Stanley Deck was cho- 
sen to be Ehrhart's running mate as 
Business Manager. The defeated 
candidates for these two posts were 
James Whitman for Editor and John 
Moller for Business Manager. 

The election of Mr. Ehrhart was 
not at all unexpected. He has been 
a very active member of La Vie staff 
for two years and has been an honor 
student from the time he entered 
Lebanon Valley. 



Dr. Butterwick to 
Retire Pro Tern 

Due to illness, Dr. Butterwick, 
head of the Department of Philoso- 
phy and Religion, will no longer meet 
his classes. Since he has not been 
well for some time, he feels that, for 
the time being at least, he is unable 
to handle his class work. In view of 
this, he is retiring from active duty

gram under the direction of Miss 
Gillespie: Nora Franklin, sopra- 
no; Helen Butterwick, Christine 
Yoder, and Beatrice Fink, Senior 
Girls' Trio; Cecil Oyler, cornet 
solo; and Anita Patschke, accom-

Long Elected to Carry

Depressed over Outlook 



Faculty Meet 
to Be Held 
at Harrisburg 

The Eleventh Annual Faculty Con- 
ference will convene at the Harris- 
burg Civic Club, Harrisburg, Penn- 
sylvania, Saturday, March 12, 1938. 
This annual conference of faculty 
members is held under the auspices 
of the Student Division of the state 
Young Men's Christian Association of 
Pennsylvania. 

The purpose of the gathering is 
stated in the program of the organi- 
zation. With the Christian religion 
avowed by repudiated and openly op- 
posed in some parts of the world and 
sacrilegiously misinterpreted and de- 
liberately ignored in others, Christian 
leaders are challenged anew to a more 
realistic interpretation and a more 
vigorous application of the Christian 
message in our rapidly changing so- 
cial order. 

Since our colleges prepare the 
leaders to carry out this religious 
philosophy, the organization feels 
that it is the duty of the college pro- 
fessors, who interpret the changing 
social order * to students, to discuss 
the religious situations in our col 
leges. 

The morning session of the confer 
(Continued on Page 3, Column 5) 



Campus literary and political cir- 
cles were visibly agitated during the 
weekend and the forepart of the week 
oy sudden developments in the Jun- 
ior Quittie staff. These developments 
reached an open climax on Monday 
morning, when, after Chapel, the 
class met at the instance of the Quit- 
tie Faculty Committee to elect a new 
editor. 

The crisis was created by the re- 
signation of William Clark, the edi- 
tor-in-chief of the annual. After the 
reading of the resignation by Junior 
President, Benny Goodman, Dr. Stru- 
Dle, faculty adviser of the Quittie, 
was called upon for a statement. He 
responded by professing his regrets, 
and calling attention to the difficulty 
of substituting for the editor-in-chief 
at this late date. He reminded the 
class that expedition would be nec- 
essary in order that the yearbook 
might appear on May 1, as planned. 

Dr. Struble also reported the delib- 
erations of the Faculty committee, 
which was called on Friday noon to 
meet the exigency. It was then ruled 
that nominees for editorship of the 
Quittie must be approved by the com- 
mittee, and that the committee would 
lend endorsement to any member of 
the present staff who should be elect- 
ed by the Junior Class to fill the va- 
cancy, caused by Clark's resignation. 

The resignation was duly accepted 
after the failure of a motion for ad- 
journment until the afternoon. The 
retiring editor had named Robert 
Long as his choice for successor in 
his resignation. Dr. Struble second- 
ed Long's candidacy, having secured 
his willingness to serve if elected, 
during a visit to Long's house over 
the weekend. The result of President

Philo ,/ Foo ,/ Frolic Friday "Foo" 



i 



As the opening social event of the 
spring season, the Philokosmians will 
hold an affair entirely unprecedented 
on the campus. It is the initial "Foo" 
dance scheduled for Friday night at 
8:00 P. M. in the Alumni Gymnas- 
ium. 

The music for the "Foo" dancers 
will be furnished by Ed Light and 
his orchestra, while the program will 
be featured with several unique pi- 
ano interpretations by Mr. Light. He 
has been heard on several occasions 
at L. V. C, and his renditions were 
invariably well received by a most 
appreciative audience. He will be 
supported by his band, a very cap- 



able swing club heretofore unheard 
on L. V. C. campus. 

The price of admission to the 
dance is one "Foo" (pronounced as 
"girl.") In lieu of the fact that there 
is a shortage of this particular type 
of "Foo" on L. V. C. campus, every 
Philo is urged to preserve one for 
Friday "Foo" (pronounced as 
"night.") 

The arrangements for the dance 
have been completed by Raymond 
Smith, assisted by Jack Kreamer, 
Warren Sechrist, and John Lynch- 
When approached about the dance, 
their only statement for the press 
was, "A 'Foo' in time saves nine." 



Men's Debate Team 
on Southern Tour 

The men's affirmative debating 
team left Tuesday morning on a de- 
bating trip which will include meets 
with the teams of four different col- 
leges in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and 
the District of Columbia. Clifford 
Barnhart, Calvin Spitler, and Carl 
Ehrhart comprise the squad sent on 
the tour. 

The first debate on the schedule 
was with Gettysburg College on 
Tuesday afternoon, while Western 
Maryland followed in the evening at 
Westminster, Maryland. No debates 
were planned for Wednesday, which 
day the debaters spent in Washing- 
ton, D. C. 

Debating is being resumed today 
with encounters with American Uni- 
versity in Washington this morning, 
and also with Washington College at 
Chestertown, Maryland, this evening. 
The team expect to return to campus 
tomorrow (Friday). 

The negative team is planning a 
tour in the near future.

yearbooks and 
elections 

The present junior class 
admittedly in a bad state, with the 
school year drawing to a close and their 
yearbook plans suddenly thrown into 
Snxusion^Although the business on- 
ager optimistically hopes for the ap- 
Z ance of the annual by the close of 
school, we judge, from our experience 
wiS yearbooks, that the student body 
will be more likely to be receiving their 
copies by the middle of the summer 
Printers and engravers simply cannot be 
rushed at a time when dozens of schools 
are making demands upon them. 

At such a time as this, it may be well 
to point out that a certain amount ol 
thoughtful consideration should be em- 
ployed not only by the classes, but by 
the student body as a whole in the elec- 
tion of their officers. Only too often are 
the members apt to think only of a can- 
didates degree of popularity or his ath- 
letic record, instead of satisfying them- 
selves that he is competent for the po- 
sition in question. We know of cases 
where some students have made nomin- 
ations without even knowing the correct 
name of their proposed candidate! 

To every office and position, whether 
great or small, there is attached a cer- 
tain amount of pure and simple drud- 
gery expressed in time, effort, and cur- 
tailment of other activities. If it has its 
ultimate expression in some tangible re- 
sult such as a yearbook, its evasion may 
be easily seen. In other cases, a neglect 
of responsibility results in the stagna- 
tion and inactivity with which ninety 
percent of the organizations on the cam- 
pus are infected. It is a condition which 
can be remedied only by the intelligent 
election of individuals who are willing to 
accept the work as well as the honor 
that accompanies the office. 

We have every confidence in Mr. Long, 
the new editor of the Quittapahilla. He 
deserves the full support of his staff 
(which he probably will not receive), and 
the sympathy of his classmates (which 
is still less likely). The publication of 
an annual is a task, the magnitude of 
which is too infrequently appreciated. 

We note with satisfaction that the 
growing need for saner elections has 
eventually expressed itself in the recent 
faculty resolution concerning the ap- 
proval of yearbook nominees. Unless 
certain conditions are corrected, it re- 
quires little stretch of the imagination 
to fortell the time when nominees for all 
campus offices will have to be similarly 
endorsed. Although it might seem to 
be an unwarranted interference, it 
would certainly be preferable to the lat- 
ter alternative, which leaves conditions 
that must be eventually corrected. 



BEYONDt^C&MPUS 

If you've often wondered what 
other campus columnists talk 
about, as we have so often, you'll 
be interested in these gems from 
those who tell other campusites 
what it's all about. On our honor, 
they're all clipped verbatim: 

No. 1: "In the coming month, 
when candidates start campaign- 
ing, remember this: The walking 
brief case, derby and doublebreast- 
ed suit (lawyer), is also likely to 
be a stuffed shirt." 

No. 3: "The ideal professor is 
just one of our straight 'A' stud- 
ents grown up. However, he for- 
gets to change his suit from year 
to year. The student doesn't do 
that." (This was in an interview 
column, so don't blame the column- 
ists ) . 

No. 4: "The girl speaks first. Yes 
this is her obligation, and she must 
fulfill it." 

No. 5: "And so, while the silk 
worms and the lisle worms rear 
their heads, time passes and sum- 
mer anklets will run them both in- 
to eclipse." 

No. 6: "Sitting in a classroom 
behind a girl who has a two-foot 
zipper down the back of her blouse 
has become a torture vastly more 
cruel than all thousand of the Chin- 
ese methods."

Two years ago it was the "Veter- 
ans of Future Wars" who were ask- 
ing for their bonuses in advance. 
Last week it was— and still is, ac- 
cording to last reports — the "Insti- 
tute for International Ill-Will" ask- 
ing for war right away. 

Founded by two Emory Univer- 
sity undergraduates with a zest for 
bloody burlesque, the organization 
seeks other chapters "all over the 
world" to help burlesque modern 
war and international diplomacy. 

In a telegram to Adolf Hitler, 
they said, "quit stalling and fight 
Austria." The telegram was reius- 
ed by two wire companies. An- 
other message was drafted, and re- 
ported accepted by one of the com- 
panies. It read: 

"We are all behind you and the 
eight ball. We recommend Austria 
for your growing pains."

We were sorry to disappoint 
last week, but as we explained 
elsewhere, engravers simply 
can't be trusted.

So we carefully wrapped this

shoved him back into his teepee 
ior another week. 




Medicine Man: "And folks, remem- 
ber that I've got something that

overnight." 

Man In Crowd: "Yeh, I've got a son

She: Do you need help?

First Student: I'm through with 
that girl. 

Second Student: Why? 

First Ditto: She asked me if I danc- 
ed. 

Second Ditto: Well? 

First Again: I was dancing with 

her when she asked me.

"You look sweet enough to eat" 
He whispered soft and low. 
"I do," the fair one answered 
"Where do you want to go." 

* * * 

Co-ed — Just a matter of form. 

Skeleton — Bones with the person 
rubbed off. 

Adult— One who has stopped grow- 
ing except in the middle. 

Sophomore — Merely a Freshman 
who has paid his tuition twice. 

Fortnight— Something English in 
plays haven't been home in. 

Weekend— ^Something you have lots 
of time to do work in except that it's 
suddenly Monday morning. 

Stability— A garage for horses. 

Underbred — Beneath the crust.

The policeman was talking to the 
two very inebriated gentlemen from 
the remainder of what had been a 
car. 

"Now, who was driving?" 

One, raising himself on an elbow, 
triumphantly said: "None of us, we 
wash all in the back seat." 



WASHING/TON, D. C — On 
March 10, 11 and 12 the Ameri- 
can Youth Congress will make its 
third "pilgrimage" to the Capital 
in an effort to induce Congress to 
pass the American Youth Act and 
similar legislation. The legisla- 
tion, or most of it, in which they 
are interested calls for the appro-, 
priation of additional millions to* 
aid youth and also the promotion 
of Peace. 

The build-up for the Pilgrim- 
age, however, offers a keen in- 
sight into the big league manner 
in which the Youth Congress is 
running its affairs. The American 
Legion, the American Farm Fed- 
eration, or some other old estab- 
lished national organization, could 
hardly handle their demonstra- 
tions more effectively. 

Last week, for example, the 
Washington council of the Youth 
Congress held a meeting here to 
build up interest in the coming 
march to Washington. The speak- 
ers were none other than Mrs. 
Roosevelt and Dr. Homer P. Rai- 
ney, director of the American 
fouth Commission.

Fees for out-of-state students at Louisiana State University are 
now on a reciprocal basis, being the same as charged Louisiana students 
to attend the state university from which a student comes. 

Michigan educational authorities are considering establishing grad- 
uate divisions for the state's teachers colleges. 

Louisiana State University journalism students have completed the 
histories of 18 newspapers in that state. 

Temple University has established a new school of nursing with a 
five-year course. 

Tulane University officials are considering instituting a non-com- 
pulsory course in naval science and tactics. 

A shop in which students may spend their leisure time pursuing 
their hobbies has been opened at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

Gracie Allen decided to make her own award to college students. She 
discovered that the smart students became Phi Beta Kappas and got all 
kinds of honors. She thought it was all wrong. Any smart boy can grad- 
uate from a university, she insisted, if his grades are high enough. The: 
deserving boy, in Gracie's opinion, is the ingenious one who gets his skin 
with low grades. So she is awarding a bearskin as the Gracie Allen 
Award for Ingenuity to the boy graduating with the lowest marks from 
an American College.

Newark University officials this month opened a drive for an en-

Valley ites End 
JJest Season 
a s Lions Fall 



Completing their most successful 
sea son in the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Collegiate League, Lebanon Valley 
sU bdued the Albright Lions by a 42- 
g7 count on the Reading Y. M. C. A. 
c0 urt Saturday night. 

The Blue and White played heads- 
u p ball throughout in administering 
{^e first defeat Albright has suffered 
n its home floor this season, the 
Lions having vanquished on her home 
stamping grounds, every other quin- 
tet in the league. The Dutchmen as- 
sumed an early lead and were never 
headed thereafter. 

The victory gave the Annville Col- 
legians a league record of 9 wins and 
on ly 3 losses, an achievement which 
ensconced them in second place. As 
this paper went to press the Gettys- 
burg Bullets, who were at the top of 
the loop with 9 games on the credit 
side of their ledger and only 2 re- 
verses, had one more encounter, that 
with F. & M. at Lancaster. There- 
fore, there was the possibility, how- 
ever remote, that L. V. C. and Gettys- 
burg would end up neck and neck, ne- 
cessitating a play-off tilt to determine 
the 1938 champions. 

Raymie Frey again led the Dutch- 
men's offensive, penetrating the Read- 
ing collegians defense for 7 deuces 
and a pair of charity throws, aggre- 
gating 16 points. This scoring orgy 
boosted Frey's league total to the 
astounding sum of 190 points garner- 
ed in twelve tilts. The former record 
had been held by Cal Heller, erstwhile 
Blue and White center, who had rack- 
ed up 172 counters in one season. 

Aiding materially in the scoring 
were Captain Billett, with 8 counters 
and Ed Kress with 6. 

In a preliminary game the L. V. C. 
Frosh were the victims of a last per- 
iod spurt by the Albright Frosh who 
finished on the long end of a 28- 
18 score. The scores:

Clark Hints at 
"Pressure" as Cause 



(Continued from page 1) 



Goodman's ballot was consequently 
in favor of Long as the second editor 
of this year's Quittie. 

It is generally recognized that 
Long faces a trying situation which 
results from the tardiness of mate- 
rial in being turned out by the staff. 
It was this delay in matter reaching 
the printer which caused the latter 
to prompt a Faculty Committee in- 
vestigation of the status of Quittie 
affairs. These were found unsatis- 
factory and Clark's relinquishment 
of the office resulted. 

Clarence Lehman, Business Mana- 
ger of the annual, who is probably 
better acquainted than any other now 
concerned to estimate the exact stat- 
us of the publication, expressed a 
none too hopeful outlook. "Although 
Clark was apparently not competent 
as an organizer and editor," he stat- 
ed in response to several queries, "I 
nevertheless feel that this was too 
late a date at which to force his re- 
signation. The staff might just as 
well begin over again. We shall put 
forth every effort, but we shall be 
lucky if the book is ready by the end 
of school." He also stated that Clark 
had consistently left him under the 
impression that progress was being 
made as per schedule. 

Clark himself was unwilling to 
give out any statement, but called 
attention to his letter of resignation. 
"I feel in duty bound to inform the 
class," this message read, "that I 
have met with very serious opposi- 
tion in the attempt to carry (my) 
plans into full execution. This op- 
position has recently taken so power- 
ful a form that I find myself unable 
longer to resist it, the more especial- 
ly since it becomes so at a time when 
unfortunate changes threaten to in- 
terfere with my actions, not only as 
an editor, but even as a student." 

"In view, then, of these things, 1 
hereby respectfully request the Jun- 
ior Class ... to accept this document 
as my resignation from the position 
of the . . . Quittapahilla, this resig- 
nation to become effective immediate- 
ly and irrevocably, and in view of no 
consideration whatever, to be denied 
or set aside." 

The new editor, Mr. Long, now re- 
alizes the task which lies before him, 
and presented his plan of reorgani- 
zation at a staff meeting Tuesday. 
Assignments were handed out for the 
work which remains to be completed 
and the success of the book now rests 
entirely in the hands of the staff 
members. There seems to be quite a 
bit of reorganization of material 
which must take place, for the for- 
mer editor left things in such a state 
that he alone holds the key to their 
solution. 



Treo and Flom Take 
Laurels in Production 

(Continued from page 1) 



Seventh East Penn 
Race Valley's Best 



of loveliness to a very attractive set. 

The real surprise of the production 
was the highly creditable work of 
Esther Flom. As a character artist 
she performed with a sureness of vi- 
gor that is unusual in amateur thea- 
tricals. 

The center of attention was of 
course held by the two brothers. Mr. 
Clark is by now an old stager whose 
work is well known to L. V. C. audi- 
ences. This is the third play this 
season in which he has appeared, and 
like all great artists has by this time 
developed a style of his own. Mr. 
Spitler made, I think, his first ap- 
pearance on our stage, and is de- 
serving of considerable praise. His 
mature and dignified bearing provid- 
ed an effective foil for the mercurial 
Mr. Clark, and he handled his lines 
with a competence that was a credit 
to his department. 

No amateur play is without de- 
fects, and this one was no exception. 
Mr. Clark, who did some of the best 
work of the play, was also the object 
of greatest criticism. It is a princi- 
ple of dramatic production, as well 
as of common courtesy, that an actor 
who is not speaking shall remain mo- 
tionless so as not to attract attention 
away from the one who is speaking. 
This principle Mr. Clark shamelessly 
violated, jumping about over the 
stage and diverting attention toward 
himself at the most inopportune mo- 
ments. Besides this he repeatedly 
forgot his lines and improvised in 
what I am told was very bad German 
and sometimes even, for want of a 
German word, in English. Nor was 
his enunciation all that could be de- 
sired. Nevertheless, it cannot be de- 
nied that Mr. Clark was diverting, in 
the good sense as well as in the bad 
sense of the word. Mr. Spitler at 
times appeared self-conscious and 
was more passive than his part re- 
quired. Some of the effectiveness of 
Miss Treo's work was lost because 
she frequently failed to project her 
voice out to the audience. If any 
criticism can be levied against Miss 
Flom it is that she was too "heavy"; 
that is, the seriousness and intensity 
of her playing was incompatible with 
the general frivolity of the play. 

But these are perhaps piddling cri- 
ticisms; the big thing is that we had 
an evening of rare entertainment 
and enjoyed ourselves immensely. To 
those named: to Mr. Henry Schott, 
who did the lighting; to Miss Harcle- 
rode, of the grease paints and powder 
puffs; to the very necessary Robert 
Long, business manager; and, above 
all, to Miss Lietzau, the unseen spir- 
it behind this highly edifying frivol- 
ity, go our warmest thanks. Und zu 
dem Deutsche Verein, leben sie wohl 
bis auf weidersehen! 



The Eastern Pennsylvania Collegi- 
ate Basketball Conference has com- 
pleted its seventh successful season. 
Taking the entire league history into 
consideration, the Flying Dutchmen 
of Lebanon Valley have played four- 
teen games with each of the other 
six teams in the league and hold the 
edge over two, are even with two, 
and are running behind the remain- 
ing pair. The easiest victim for Leb- 
anon Valley has been Muhlenberg, 
the Mules having lost nine games, 
while winning only four. The Blue 
and White holds the slim 8-6 margin 
over the Drexel Dragons, but they 
have fought Ursinus and Albright to 
standstills. 

On the deficit side are Gettysburg 
and Franklin and Marshall. In fact 
the Bullets have succumbed only once 
in fourteen encounters, that being 
last year in the close game on the 
Lebanon High court. F. and M. held 
an 8-4 margin over the Valleyites 
previous to this season, but that mar- 
gin was cut down to 8-6 by virtue of 
the two drubbings handed to the Di- 
plomats this winter. 

Against the collective opponents 
the Annville team has won 38 and lost 
46. Their best record was scored this 
season with nine wins and three set- 
backs. The worst record was in 1936 
when only two games were won and 
ten lost. 

The won-lost records for each sea- 
son: 

1932, Won 8, Lost 4 

1933, Won 4, Lost 8 

1934, Won 6, Lost 6

Seniors-Sophs Tie 
in Interclass Race 



With the two-thirds mark being 
reached the Interclass Basketball 
loop lead is in a deadlock between 
the Seniors and the Sophomores, each 
having four victories and one defeat. 
Both of them have beaten the Jun- 
iors and Freshmen rather easily in 
most of the games and they have 
halved the two games they played 
against each other. The Freshmen 
have had difficulty in acclimating 
themselves to the floor and have lost 
all their games. 

In the game last Tuesday the 
Sophomores ran through the Fresh- 
men by the very lop-sided score of 
69-27, in a sensational display of 
scoring. The standing:

Green Blotter 
Holds Meeting 

The monthly meeting of the Green 
Blotter Club was held at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Struble last Thursday 
evening at 8 o'clock. First, in the 
way of business, the resignation of 
William Clark was read by Sylva 
Harclerode. The club discussed the 
advisability of dropping members 
from the group after two successive 
absences, and plans were made for a 
reunion of old club members in the 
form of a buffet supper at the Struble 
home, Saturday, April 23, at 3 P. M. 
All old members should bring manu- 
scripts, the inkspots concluded. Plans

two Sophomores and one Freshman. 
Manuscripts are to be handed to Dr. 
Struble.

Freshman Tea 

The freshmen were entertained 
at a tea by Dr. and Mrs. Lynch 
on Wednesday, March 9. The af- 
fair lasted from three-thirty to 
five o'clock, and seventy freshmen 
attended. 

Mrs. Grimm and Mrs. Carmean 
poured; and three juniors, Ruth 
Rohrer, Edith Metzger, and Lill- 
ian Zubroff, helped to serve. 

The program, in charge of Miss 
Gillespie, also included numbers 
by juniors, class-cousins of the 
freshmen. It consisted of a vocal 
solo by Helen Himmelberger, a 
cello solo by Marianne Treo, and 
a bassoon solo by Robert Smith. 

This occasion marked the last 
of the series of teas given by Dr. 
and Mrs. Lynch in honor of the 
various classes.

gave a special address at both the 
morning and the evening services of 
the church of the United Brethren in 
Christ, Sunday, March 20, which is

ance of Education Day in that 
church. Dr. Behney will also appear

Debate Team on 
New York Trip 

The men's negative debating team 
left today for a debating trip to New 
York. As part of their tour they plan 
to have debates with Upsala, C. C. 
N. Y., and Wagner. Teams from Up- 
sala and Wagner have been debated 
on Lebanon Valley's campus already 
this season, but C. C. N. Y. is a new 
opponent. 

Curvin Dellinger and Raymond 
Smith compose the team making the 
trip. They will stay at the homes of 
friends in and around New York, 
and plan to return to college on Sun- 
day. 

The negative combination of Del- 
linger and Smith met and defeated 
an affirmative team from Western 
Maryland on Monday evening. The 
debaters for Western Maryland were 
Alfred Goldberg and Frank Sher- 
rard. 

The Rev. J. F. Patterson, pastor of 
St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran 
Church of Annville, acted as critic 
judge and rendered the decision in 
favor of the negative. The verdict 
was based on the negative's showing 
that neither labor, capital, nor th 
general public want compulsory arbi- 
tration of all industrial disputes, a 
case which the affirmative was un 
able to refute. The question of en 
forcement of decisions of the Nation 
al Labor Relations Board in event 
they were given the power of arbitra 
tion also played a large part in 
reaching the decision. 



By Robert P. Tschopp 
Campus dramatics fans were treat- 
ed last week to a rare treat when the 
Hedgerow Theatre players presented 
Bernard Shaw's "Candida" in Engle 
Hall on the night of Thursday, March 
10. Those who were fortunate enough 
to witness the performance were unan- 
imous in their commendation of the 
fine work done by Jasper Deeter and 
his cohorts during the course of the 
evening. 

To those "in the know" the quality 
of the acting was no great surprise. 
Hedgerow, with one of the largest 
repertories in the country, specializes 
in Shaw's works, having some ten of 
his plays included in their list of pro- 
ductions. "Arms and the Man" has 
been done over fifty times, "Andro- 
cles and the Lion" about forty-five 
and "Candida" is also well known to 
the actors, having been their first 
show back in April, 1923. 

Thursday night's vehicle is gener- 
ally acknowledged by critics to be one 
of the best, and certainly one of the 
most enduring of Shaw's plays. Re- 
markable chiefly for the fine charac- 
ter portrayal in the part of Candida, 
it was written in 1894 and became 
very popular in this country upon its 
introduction here shortly after the 
turn of the century. 

While much more could and should

sonal letter. 



Conserve Plans 
Sixth Annual 
Musical Festival 

The Sixth Annual Music Festival 
will be held at Engle Hall Friday af- 
ternoon and evening, March 26th. 

The Festival is presented by the 
Glee Club, Chorus and Concert band, 
and will consist of a choral concei't in 
which both the Glee Club and the 
Chorus will participate, which will 
begin at 4:00, and the Band Concert 
at 8:00 p. m. 

An interesting feature of this year's 
Festival is the appearance of the 
mixed chorus on the program. This 
group of over one hundred mixed 
voices will be heard in the afternoon 
choral concert, together with the Glee 
Club. 

The choral concert will be divided 
into two parts, the first of which will 
be presented by the Glee Club. The 
Festival comes in the wake of a very 
active and highly successful season 
for the Club, which included a ten 
day tour of cities in Pennsylvania, 
Maryland, and Washington, D. C. 

The remainder of the afternoon con- 
cert will be presented by the mixed 
chorus, which will sing three selec- 
tions. One of those to be used is an 
original composition of one of its 
members, Robert Clippinger, who 
shows a great deal of promise as an 
artist and student, and is a Junior in

German Play to Travel 

Der Deutscher Verein of Leba- 
non Valley will participate in the 
"Cultural Olympics" on April 9 at 
the University of Pennsylvania. 

Colleges located in Pennsylva- 
nia, Delaware, and New Jersey 
have been invited to present plays 
in foreign languages, and the local 
German Club will give a perform- 
ance of "Einer Muss Heiraten," 
which was presented on campus 
on March 2. Dr. Lietzau, adviser 
of Der Deutscher Verein, is in 
charge of arrangements for this 
performance. 

The officers of the German Club 
are Calvin Spitler, president, Rob- 
ert Long, vice-president, and 
Theresa Stefan, secretary-treas- 
urer. 



German Lecturer 
Coming to Campus 

The Honorable Max Brauer, Bur- 
gomeister of Altona Germany, now 
in exile, will be the guest of Leba- 
non Valley College from March 23- 
25. Dr. Brauer is an Aryan Luther- 
an and comes to the college under the 
auspices of the Universal Christian 
Council for Life and Work: Ameri- 
can Section of the Federal Council 
of the Churches of Christ in Amer- 
ica. 



The range of subjects for his lec- 
tures and discussion groups is as- 
toundingly large. Although a native 
of Germany, he does not only speak 
authoritatively of conditions as they 
exist in Germany today, but is equally 
well versed in the conditions of the 
Far East. Reports from the colleges 
which Dr. Brauer has already visit- 
ed are very encouraging. 

The committee on arrangements is 
planning a full schedule for Dr. 
Brauer. Everyone will be given the 
opportunity for hearing Dr. Brauer 
speak, when he addresses the chapel 
on Wednesday morning. He will 
meet classes of Professors Lietzau, 
Stokes and Gingrich, and will also 
appear in smaller seminar groups. In 
addition, he has been secured to ad- 
dress the meeting of the I. R. C. to 
be held on Wednesday, March 23. Top- 
ics which will probably be discussed, 
as indicated by the professors, are the 
German church crisis, the pan-Ger- 
man idea and German minorities in 
Europe, and the German Jews and 
their problems in the present day. 



Kalo-Delphian 
Selects R.U.R. 
for Joint Play 

Capek's Production 
on Modernistic Theme; 
Play Cast Announced 



The Kalo-Delphian play will be of 
a rather unusual nature this year for 
they have selected Rossum's Univer- 
sal Robots by Karel Capek, better 
known as R. U. R. It is a modernis- 
tic play with distinctive lines of such 
a type that has never before been at- 
tempted on this campus. Robert 
Spohn will direct the play and will 
be assisted by a committee under the 
leadership of Eugene Shenk. The cast 
has been selected as follows: Domin 
Lloyd Beamesderfer; Seilla — Re- 
becca Parks; Marias— Frank Shenk; 
Helena Glory— Myrtle Leff; Dr. Gall 
—Marshall Frey; Mr. Fabry — George 
Munday; Dr. Hallemeier— Charles 
Raab; Mr. Alquist— Clarence Leh- 
man; Consul Busman — Vincent Na- 
gle; Nana— Mildred Bomberger; Ra- 
dius—Ralph Billett; Helena, the 
Robotess — Laurene Dreas; Primus — 
Dean Aungst; a Servant— Barbara 
Bowman; Robots — John Gongloff, 
Clarence Aungst, Paul Myers. 

The scene of the play is laid on an 
island possessing a robot factory 
which produces laborers for the en- 
tire world. A humanization of these 
creatures ensues, followed by their re- 
bellion, and ultimately, not only the 
island, but the whole world is in their 
control. But one human remains. The 
robots eventually wear out, save two 
having a spark of humanity in them. 



Peace Conferences 
Attract Students 

A number of members of the P. R. 
C. who also belong to the Foreign 
Policy Association are planning to 
attend two conferences in Philadelphia 
on Saturday of this week. 

The Student Peace Conference is 
holding an all day session at Swarth- 
more College, and the Philadelphia 
branch of the Foreign Policy Associa- 
tion will have a luncheon and meet- 
ing. A business meeting of the I. R. 
C. will be held before Saturday to 
make definite plans. 



On Debating Trip with the Team | 

Mov.^Vi 11 1QOO Hill- ii ■ . I 



March 11, 1938 
Dear Cousin Foosy, 

You'll hardly believe me when I 
tell you where I have been and what 
I've been doing. Foos around Leba- 
non Valley College have up to this 
time been confined to notices on the 
bulletin boards, but now I am the 
first foo in history to go on a debat- 
ing trip. I dont' know if I ever want 
to go on another, but it was all right 
while it lasted. 

On Tuesday morning I was walk- 
ing around in front of the Ad Build- 
ing thinking of what I could do next 
in my foo missionary work on cam- 
pus. Being tired and having a hang- 
over from the night before, I crawled 
into a car to sleep. Since foos are 



just little things and partially invis- 
ible I thought I could get out in time 
if the owner showed up. But the 
hangover was just a little too much 
for me. 

When I awoke the car was tearing 
down the highway at a merry clip 
and I knew I was in for something 
or other. My mother had always 
told me, "Foos have to be careful." 
But that didn't do any good now, 
for I was kidnapped, either accident- 
ly or purposely. Imagine my sur- 
prise when I learned I was in for a

It is customarily our policy to refrain 
from commenting on national or inter- 
national issues, since we feel that a col- 
lege paper should confine itself primar- 
ily to student problems. Then too, how 
could immature youths speak intelligent- 
ly of world crises where men of affairs 
have proved to be so hopelessly mud- 
dled in their analyses. 

However, the rapid sequence of Euro- 
pean events of the past several weeks 
moves us to express an attitude that we 
have not found current among our con- 
temporaries in college journalism. It is 
the attitude of peace, yes — but not of 
"peace at any price." In our opinion, 
there may exist circumstances wherein 
pacific retrenchment may operate to 
the eventual detriment of the nation in- 
volved. 

We believe that if the United States 
wishes to preserve her own freedom and 
democracy, she cannot safely allow the 
democracies of Western Europe to be 
beaten in military conflict. If Germany 
and Italy insist upon securing their 
"place in the sun," there is no reason to 
believe that they will be any less offen- 
sive, or menacing after they have for- 
tified themselves with the spoils of 
other nations. Their economic, indus- 
trial, and political woes are not to be 
solaced by the acquisition of nations 
whose burdens are fully as heavy as 
their own. 

We have the greatest respect for the 
German people, but they appear to us as 
a child who does not know his own 
strength. And as such, they are con- 
stantly hovering on the brink of some 
terrible catastrophe such as that which 
overtook France in 1870. 

We do not believe that war is immi- 
nent. But we do believe, that, if it does 
come, the most important interests of 
the United States lie on the side of de- 
mocracy, and they are not to be served 
by adopting ostrich-like tactics. We 
once heard the opinion that the United 
States and England were the greatest 
proponents of war in the world today; 
that by abandoning nations such as Eth- 
iopia, Austria and Spain to their fate, 
we have created situations that will in- 
evitably lead to war. We do not sub- 
scribe wholly to this view, although it 
is possible that a bit of judicious polic- 
ing of German affairs when treaty vio- 
lations first began to occur might have 
given them a more amenable and ra- 
tional tone. 

However, treaty violations will con- 
tinue to go on, and Hitler will continue 
to proclaim, until eventually he con- 
trives to proclaim himself into a serious 
, mess. Then England will cease her 
"muddling through," France her flound- 
ering about, and the world will witness 
another Armageddon. And when the old 
line-up again emerges on top, we hope 
they do a better job of repair than they 
did in 1914. Dictators are apparently 
more troublesome than royalty.

Yes, sir! Its happened. 

Reading the following three 
short paragraphs about Dr. Jacob

Jersey State Agricultural College, 
appearing before a legislative bud-

Breaking down his salary appro- 
priation before the committee, Lip- 
man explained there were some 19 
employees who receive over $2,700 
annually, but only 18 received in- 
creases. 

"What happened to the other 
one," queried one assemblyman. 

"Well, that is I," said the pres- 
ident. "I felt the increases were for 
those in the lower brackets, so I 
refused it to keep a clear con-

When the Harvard University

inquire as to whether or not the

a piano — and as concert-time was 
about to be called they found it 
didn't. 

Scouts were sent abroad to find 
one, returned in an hour with the 
news that the only one available 
was in Paine music hall. So 1,000 
chagrined music lovers trudged 
across the yard in a blizzard, took

What They Say 

Question — What is your opin- 
ion of the clothes the opposite 
sex wears on campus? 



Don Haverstick, Freshman: They 
are, for the most part all right. I 
do prefer sports clothes. 

Amy Meinhart, Junior: The boys' 
clothes are what you would expect 
in college fellows — sloppy. On the 
whole they dress as well as the 
girls. 

Mildred Gardner, Freshman: 
Quite a few, especially the dorm 
students, look as if they slept in 
their clothes. 

Raymond Frey, Junior: They suit 
me. I don't like kerchiefs on 
heads. 

Lillian Zubroff, Junior: There 
are a few really well-dressed boys 
on campus. 

Bill Bender, Sophomore: Pretty 
snappy and all that stuff. They're 
all right. 

Dwight Heiland, Sophomore: I 
don't like red fingernail polish. 
Most of the girls dress as coeds 
should and are neat. 

Mary Touchstone, Sophomore: 
The fellows could use a pressing 
room. 

Dorothy Long, Sophomore: A 
girl would never go to class in bed- 
room slippers. The boys who won't 
tie their shoes or wear ties are just 
plain lazy. 

Raymond Smith, Junior: I 
am afraid to say. 

Dave Lenker, Sophomore: Most 
of them are pretty nice. I don't like 
these bandanna things on heads. 

Sylva Harclerode, Senior: They 
look suitable to me. 

Irene Seiders, Freshman: I pre- 
fer sweaters in classes to suit coats. 

Jesse Lenker, Sophomore: I find 
them satisfactory. I dislike these 
things they wear on their heads. 

Howard Baier, Junior: High 
heels and anklets together are my 
pet gripe. 

Margaret Bordwell, Freshman: I 
never bothered to notice. 

Dennis Geesey, Sophomore: Most 
of the girls dress suitably, but 
some wear too elaborate things to 
classes.

re: 



Bisons Shade 
Valleyites in 
Wild Battle 

4 

In the last game ever to be played 
on the small floor of the old Bucknell 
gymnasium, the home team outscored 
the Flying Dutchmen of Lebanon 
Valley last week by a 78-55 count. 
The Valleyites held ten-point lead in 
the first half, but were unable to 
hold forth. The small court seemed 
to bother the team very much. The 
half-time score was 39-32. 

Scoring honors for the evening- 
were shared by Raymie Frey, Blue 
and White center, and Foltz, Bison 
forward, each having 24. Not far be- 
hind was Summers of the home team 
with 22. The only other Valley man 
to pass the ten mark was Captain 
Billett with 13. 

The game was quite a contract to 
last year's encounter in which five 
Lebanon Valley warriors, minus one 
of their regulars, broke the Bisons' 
long home winning streak. This time 
the visitors could not get started. 
Their offense was hard to work on a 
small floor, and their defense could 
not cope with the daringly lucky 
shots of their opponents. Soon after 
the intermission it was evident that 
only a sensational rally could salvage 
the game for the visitors, but that 
rally never came. Instead the Bi- 
sons kept adding to their total and 
reached the huge total of 78 points 
before the final whistle blew. 

This game was the last of their 
intercollegiate careers for Captain 
Billett and Marshall Frey. Billett 
has been a regular for three years, 
but Frey did not see very much ser- 
vice even though he was always 
ready to fill any gap that might oc- 
r. The score:

Diamond Tossers to 
Face Twelve Foes 

The 1938 baseball schedule as it 
stands now calls for twelve battles, 
five at home and the other seven 
away. The opening game will be in 
Carlisle with the Dickinson Devils. 
The only other encounter now listed 
for April is that with Gettysburg, 
defending league champions, at Get- 
tysburg on April 27. 

The first week in May will find 
Bucknell, Drexel and Albright all 
visiting Annville to engage Chief 
Metoxen's diamond tossers. The Al 
bright game will be the annual May 
Day game. Other home games are 
listed with Juniata and Muhlenberg. 
Home and home series will be played 
with Albright and Bucknell. The re- 
maining opponents are Moravian, Mt. 
St. Mary's, and Ursinus. Susquehan- 
na does not appear on the slate this 
spring. 

Diamond candidates can expect the 
call to first practice in the very near 
future. There will be plenty of chance 
for pitching prospects since Paul Bil- 
lett, ace moundsman for the past 
four seasons, has gone. Another big 
problem will be to locate some add- 
ed hitting strength. This was the 
great weakness of the nine last 
spring. The captain will be Adolph 
Capka.

Bowers at Little Rock 

Stewart Bowers, former Gettys- 
burg College pitcher who beat Leba- 
non Valley three years ago and 
signed with the Boston Red Sox later 
that summer, is scheduled to spend 
the 1938 season hurling for the Little 
Rock Travelers of the Southern As- 
sociation. Last year he was one of 
the leading pitchers of the Rocky 
Mount team of the Piedmont League. 



Tennis Schedule 
Revealed by Shenk 

Tennis Manager, Eugene Shenk, 
has just about completed his job of 
arranging a schedule for the netsters 
this spring. At present there are 
thirteen matches on the list, and ic 
is just possible that one or two more 
will be added. Six of these matches 
will be played on the Annville courts 

The season's opener will be against 
Susquehanna at Selinsgrove on April 
23. The first home match is against 
Elizabethtown on April 25. The only 
newcomer on the slate is West Ches 
ter State Teacher's College. The 
schedule : 

April 23, Susquehanna at Selins 
grove. 

April 25, Elizabethtown at Ann 
ville. 

April 27, Franklin and Marshall 

at Lancaster. 
April 28, Bucknell at Annville.

Umberger Annexes 
Handball Crown 

The Men's Singles Handball Tour- 
nament which had been going on for 
the past month was brought to a close 
last Friday, March 11, when "Sonny" 
Smith and Jacob Umberger played for 
the championship of the college. 

The champion, according to the 
rules, had to win two games out of 
three by a margin of at least two 
points per game. In the first game, 
Smith, who could not seem to get 
started, was badly beaten. In the sec- 
ond game, however, he put up a far 
better battle and lost by only two 
points. The score was 21-8; 21-19, 
with Umberger thereby winning the 
tournament. 



Frey Averages 16.7 
Points Each Game 

Compiling the astounding total of 
233 points in fourteen games Raymie 
Frey led his team in this department. 
His average was 16.65 points per 
game, a respectable average at any 
time. He also took foul shooting hon- 
ors by sinking exactly 70% of his 
attempts from the ten-foot mark. 

Others to pass the century mark 
were Billett, with 147, and Artz, with 
135. Billett tied with Tony Rozman 
for second honors in foul shooting, 
each having converted 15 out of 28 
tries. Kress was right on their heels 
with 16 out of 29. The season's to- 
tals:

Bullets Win Title 
for Fifth Time 

For the fifth time in the league's 
seven years of existence the Gettys- 
burg Bullets won the championship 
of the Eastern Pennsylvania Basket- 
ball League by downing a stubborn 
Franklin and Marshall quintet at 
Lancaster last week by a 30-25 score. 
This victory put the winners a full 
game ahead of the second place Leb- 
anon Valley outfit which had already 
completed its schedule. 

The champions won the title main- 
ly by demonstrating an air-tight de- 
fense that never suffered any bad re- 
lapses. They had a slow, methodical 
offense that always managed to score 
enough points to win. The league 
as a whole had one of the best seasons 
in its history. The final standing:

1938 Quintet 
Sets Trio of 
League Marks 

Lebanon Valley's Metoxen-coached 
1938 basketball team was the most 
successful since the formation of the 
Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Lea- 
gue in 1932, finishing in second place 
with nine wins and three defeats one 
game behind the Gettysburg five. In 
two non-league games the Flying 
Dutchmen broke even, winning from 
Dickinson and losing to Bucknell. This 
record proves beyond a doubt that 
Lebanon Valley's quintet was one of 
the best small college teams in the 
state, if not in the East. 

While compiling this impressive 
record the Blue and White smashed 
three league records. The first was 
established in the season's opener 
against Franklin and Marshall in Leb- 
anon, the Valleyites running up no 
less than 73 points against the Diplo- 
mats. Several weeks later on the 
same floor Raymie Frey, tall center 
exhibited the art of scoring in the 
finest style. He amassed 16 field 
goals and two fouls for a total of 34 
counters. Ursinus was the victim of 
this onslaught. The third and final 
record was the breaking of the sea- 
son's scoring record by Raymie Frey 
with 190 points, 18 ahead of the pre- 
vious record held by Heller, of Leba- 
non Valley. 

Two of the three losses were sus- 
tained at the hands of the champion 
Gettysburg five, and the other was ad- 
ministerd by the erratic Ursinus team 
when they were having a good night 
on their own court. Muhlenberg was 
defeated in two thrillers, 46-42 and 
64-61. Drexel and F. & M. offered 
little resistance, but Albright proved 
stubborn. At Hershey they led at half 
Lime, but the Valleyites rallied to 
win. At Reading the Red and White 
lost its only home game to the Ann- 
ville five in the season's finale. 

The feature of the attack was an 
exceptionally fast breaking offense 
that ran all the opponents but Get- 
tysburg ragged. Against the latter 
outfit the attack failed to function 
smoothly, possibly because of the 
Bullets air-tight defense. The back- 
bone of this attack was the tall cen- 
ter Raymie Frey. As stated above he

Heller Stars as 
Seniors Triumph 

Playing before no spectators at 
all the Seniors regained first place 
in the Interclass basketball league by 
swamping the Freshman team 89-40 
last Tuesday evening. Scoring honors 
for the game were captured by Russ 
Heller with 32. Dean Gasteiger was 
close on his heels with 30. For the 
Frosh the leader was Dick Bell with 
17. 

The Seniors assumed an early lead 
and kept adding to it throughput the 
game. The Frosh never had a chance. 
This victory gives the Seniors a half 
game lead over the second place Jun- 
iors. The Frosh have yet to record 
their first triumph. The score:

On Debating Trip 
with the Team 



{Continued ] from page 1) 



way. They were going all the way 
to Washington, and I had visions of 
being the first foo to shake hands 
with the president of the United 
States, but in spite of all the "firsts" 
I did hang up, I was doomed to dis- 
appointment in that one. Foos ap- 
parently haven't been recognized by 
the state department as yet. 

The first debate was with Gettys- 
burg on Tuesday afternoon, and I 
wish I could tell you that the boys 
snowed under and wiped out the op- 
position before a wildly cheering 
crowd that packed the auditorium to 
capacity. But, Foosy, the only au- 
dience consisted of debater Ehrhart, 
who played alternate, and the time- 
keeper; and the debate was a non- 
decision one. Besides being a terrific 
wound to my pride and ambition, for 
I had intended to address the foos 
who might attend, the argument 
didn't settle anything. Far from de- 
ciding the issue of the National La- 
bor Relations Board, it didn't even 
decide who were the champs. Besides, 
a more interesting question would 
have been whether an amendment 
to the Constitution should be passed 
making foos American citizens and 
giving them the right to vote. 

In the evening the team debated 
Western Maryland at Westminster, 
Maryland, for the benefit of a Ki- 
wanis Club. The fellows got a fine 
free feed out of it, but I got pinched 
in the door on the way in and couldn't 
get out for more than a half hour. 
Hereafter I will be careful, as my 
mother said. The debaters got real 
excited and I thought something 
might happen, but nothing did. 

The next day around ten o'clock or 
later in the morning we arrived in 
Washington, D. C. And I wasn't there 
long before we were in a terrible ac- 
cident. I thought for a minute that 
we were all goners, and the thought 
of the wife and all my little foos at 
home who would be bereft of their 
father made me weep. I even thought 
of you, Foosy, and what you would 
say when you got this letter from me 
telling you that I had been killed. By 
that time everything was quiet again, 
and the fellows were getting into the 
car again, having learned it was 
nothing more serious than a loose 
bumper, so both cars skeedaddled be- 
fore a cop would heave in sight. 
Think of the dishonor to the family 
of Foo if we had been sent to jail! I 
should have never recovered. 

The traffic in Washington is terri- 
ble, much more so than in Annville. 
They have big circles and streets 
coming it at all angles, and a terrific 
lot of taxi-cabs, which don't give a 
darn, and a lot of trucks which give 
even less. Most of the time I hid on 
the floor and held my hands over my 
ears and my eyes shut. It was awful. 
We visited the Supreme Court on 
Wednesday afternoon, and it all was 
quite impressive, even to a foo. I just 
adore Justice Hughes' whiskers, 
they're so cute. Hugo was there too, 
but he didn't say much. Most of them 
took it easy, but showed that they 
were listening by popping up every 
once-in-a-while and asking the law- 
yer questions which must have been 
quite embarrassing, because the law- 
yer stuttered and fuzzed around be- 
fore he could think of what to say. I 
don't know as I envy their position, 
those robes seem awfully hot. 

Next we visited the House of Rep- 
resentatives, and was I shocked! 
There were only about 30 members 
there, out of 435. Even Lefty Gomez 
has a higher batting average than 
that. I don't know if I can trust them 
to make laws for the foos of the coun- 
try, if that's all they care about it. 
And even then some of them were 



reading newspapers, talking, and 
walking around. I don't believe any- 
body was listening, and they couldn't 
have heard anything if they had 
wanted to, it was so noisy. Then they 
quit early, at 2:30 already, although 
it's not baseball season yet and I 
couldn't see any reason for it. I tried 
to sneak into the House chamber af- 
ter the meeting was over, but the 
guard told me right to my face that 
no one could get in, meeting over or 
not, and especially foos. Foosy, it 
ought to be taken up with our dis- 
trict's representatives in the House, 
how we foos are discriminated 
against. Our position is worse than 
that of the negro in the South before 
the Civil War. 

Next we went to the Senate; and, 
Foosy, the same disgraceful situation 
was prevailing there! Only a hand- 
ful of senators were present and they 
weren't paying any better attention 
than the students here at college do. 
It wasn't long that we were in until 
a senator from New Hampshire 
called a senator from Tennessee a 
jack-ass! He said it diplomatically, 
of course, but I expected a challenge 
to a duel right there and pistols at 
ten paces the next morning, but the 
other senator just wise-cracked right 
back, and it wasn't a half-bad joke, 
either. But I just thought, Foosy, 
that Daniel Webster and Henry Clay 
and a couple of those guys ought to 
see how the Senate is degenerating. 
Here at college we call that sort of 
thing a bull-session, but then I sup- 
pose foos don't know much about the 
principles of government, and couldn't 
do anything about it if they did. 

We had a debate the next morning 
before a public-speaking class at 
American University. We lost an au- 
dience decision, but I think they were 
prejudiced against foos and besides 
half of them scrammed at the end of 
the period without voting. But, Foosy, 
that is how vacillating public favor 
is and the life of a politician is not 
a bed of roses. 

We crossed the Chesapeake Bay on 
a ferry boat, after making the boat 
with a last mad dash up to the dock 
and being the last car on. The cap- 
tain was awfully mean and rocked 
the boat like the dickens, just to show 
off, I'll bet, but we landed safely 
without getting sea-sick. 

That evening, Thursday to be ex- 
act, we had an argument with Wash- 
ington College over the N. L. R. B. 
again before another huge crowd. 
We started with two, then a couple 
more wandered in and wandered out 
again, and we ended with two, the 
same two. However, I thought for 
a minute that the fellows would have 
to talk to the moose head which 
formed a prominent part of the dec- 
orations. It was a pity that the con- 
test was a non-decision, for we had 
them up a tree. Even a foo could 
see that. 

Mr. Spitler got excited again and 
nearly scared his victim to death in 
the cross-examination, but the victim 
recovered enough to shake hands and 
argue some more at the end of the 
fight. We didn't stay to argue some 
more, though, for there was a good 
show on at the local movie palace, 
and we had to see that the last sum- 
mary hadn't been cut short for noth- 
ing. For sometimes one misses a 
good part of the picture if one gets 
there late. 

We got home on Friday around 
noon and I sneaked out of the car 
unbeknownst to anybody and hurried 
home to give Matilda a souvenir I 
had gotten. But when she didn't even 
know that I had been away, I decid- 
ed that she wasn't worth it, so you 
can have it if you come and get it. 

In closing, Cousin Foosy, all I have 
to say to you is, "Join a debating 
team and see the world!" 

So long, 

Cousin Foo.

broke two individual records. He was 
named as the center on the Lancas- 
ter All-Radio team and was feared 
universally around the circuit. His 
lay-ups, one-hand side-court shots and 
his dead aim from mid-court thrilled 
spectators in every game. His value 
of the defense was always noticeable. 
Frey has already established himself 
as one of the greatest basketers ever 
to wear a Lebanon Valley uniform. 

Another consistent performer was 
Captain Ralph Billett. He was the 
next to highest scorer and proved to 
be an excellent floor leader. His speed 
and accuracy were essential to the 
team play. It may be a hard job to 
replace him next season; such men 
not being easy to find. In his three 
years of varsity play he has helped 
the team improve from the league 
doormat to a team that won the re- 
spect of all followers of the sport in 
Eastern Pennsylvania. 

Bob Artz, the other forward, was 
the sophomore sensation of the team. 
At the start of the season he was the 
unknown quantity. He had played 
well for the hapless Freshman team 
last year, but many doubted his abil- 
ity to stand up under varsity compe- 
tition. In the first game he dispelled 
all fears and soon became a vital cog 
in the machine. In the first Muhlen- 
berg game Artz entered the game with 
20 seconds to play and the Mules one 
point ahead. He scored five points 
in rapid succession, and the game was 
won. Next year he should be even 
better. 

In the guard positions were those 
rollicking footballers, Ed Kress and 
Bob Brown. Neither was a consist- 
ly high scorer even though Kress had 
his big nights, but they were excel- 
lent feeders for the other men. On 
the defense they could be counted on 
to hold their men to a minimum num- 
ber of points. Without their speed 
and excellent floor work the team 
could hardly have met with such suc- 
cess. 

The most important substitute was 
Tony Rozman who could be depend- 
able in a pinch to relieve some tiring 
regular. His insertion into the line- 
up meant no let-up in the pace of 
the attack. He scored his share of 
points and was quite indispensable in 
emergencies. 

Four other men, Dan Seiverling, 
Coda Sponaugle, Marshall Frey and 



Chris Walk were the other substi- 
tutes who saw action during the cam- 
paign. Seiverling, in spite of his 
small stature, aided the cause very 
much on a number of occasions when 
a little respite was needed by the 
starters. Sponaugle proved a steady 
guard on the occasions when he was 
given a chance. Neither Frey nor 
Walk had any real opportunity to 
show what they could do under fire. 
Opportunity failed to knock on the 
door of Adolph Capka, another spare, 
who was always there in case of em- 
ergency. 

The chances of next year's team 
look exceedingly bright. Only Ralph 
Billett must be replaced, and it is just 
possible that the bedraggled freshman 
team has some diamond in the rough 
who can plug that gap satisfactorily. 
Unfortunately Gettysburg will hardly 
suffer any more loss by graduation 
than Lebanon Valley does, so they 
will once again be the team to beat. 



John D. Rockefeller, who gave the 
University of Chicago more than 34 
millions, visited that institution only 
twice in his life.

U'row Players Score 
Hit in "Candida" 



(Continued from 'page 1) 



jj C said about the history of the play 
8 ud Hedgerow's connection with it, 
shall reserve until later any fur- 
ther remarks upon those aspects of 
case and proceed forthwith to 
the performance here. 

At the outset one is confronted by 
the inevitable difficulty of selecting 
the outstanding artist of the even- 
ing; let us, therefore, evade the is- 
gue temporarily by singling out for 
special attention Miss Miriam Phil- 
lips, who played the title role and 
gr. David Metcalf, our Marchbanks, 
with reservations for Mr. Deeter him- 
self as Burgess and Mr. Harry Shep- 
pard as the Reverend James Mavor 
Morell. Having covered practically 
the entire cast, we may as well go 
the last mile and confess here and 
now that Miss Catherine Rieser's por- 
trayal of Miss Garnett and Mr. Nof- 
er's interpretation of the Reverend 
Alexander Mill proved quite accept- 
able also; so that we now find that 
we have complimented everyone and 
have nobody left worthy of the least 
castigation. 

Taking Miss Phillips first, be it 
known that, while we liked her acting 
tremendously, there lurks in our mind 
some doubt as to whether she played 
the part as Shaw meant it to be play- 
ed. She endowed the role with plen- 
ty of womanly intuition and insight, 
but to us it appeared that she made 
the character too superior and almost 
above a normal, lovable human mis- 
take. G. B. S. himself has said that 
she dominates the situation not be- 
cause of her great intelligence, nor 
yet because of her superior virtues; 
that she is mistress of the household 
solely because of her "freedom from 
emotional slop"; and that without 
that feature she would be unimpres- 
sive. We do not believe that Miss 
Phillips entirely fulfilled those re- 
quirements, but we will say that in 
the final scene, which incidentally is 
one of the most paradoxical of Shaw's 
paradoxes, she rose to superb heights 
in her art and was largely responsible 
for getting across the point of the 
Play. 

We liked Mr. Metcalf's interpreta- 
tion of Eugene Marchbanks, the poet, 
the epitome of the dreamers of all 
time. Completely impractical but per- 
fectly frank, often led into wrong ob- 
servations by his overactive imagin- 
ation but telling the truth at all 
times, he is at the same time an ob- 
ject of pity and of laughter as well. 
Mr. Metcalf did make him awfully 
fidgety, if we may use the term, and 
w e doubt whether a sensitive young 
m an in adult company would rave 
about "an archangel with purple 
wings"; but the latter criticism must 
be laid at Shaw's door and not at 
Mr. Metcalf's. We particularly liked 
the young man's nerve and animation 
times of stress; his dialogue scenes 
With the Rev. Morell were quite well 
d°ne. On the whole, a snappy, sym- 
pathetic performance. 

Mr. Deeter, the founder of the com- 
^ny, almost stole the show in ex- 
acting the last bit of humor and 
^alice from the part of Burgess, Can- 
ada's father. Curiously enough, he 
^ as guilty of a major crime; he cut 
lll to another actor's line. Whose it 
^ as has slipped our mind for the 
^°nient, but it was passed over and 
° r gotten. Mr. Deeter was quite con- 
sent in his dialect and proved con- 



^ Usively that he knows how to make 

he most of a comedy line. The only 

Possible criticism would be that he 

^ r mitted just a shade of burlesque 

creep into his characterization, 

d that would be open to argument 

nc e at the same time he made BUr- 
^o-, 

utterly vulgar and disreputable. 
°> we'd better let well enough alone 
nd finish Mr. Deeter with the re- 



mark that he made the most of his 
part, which was considerable to be- 
gin with. 

We seem to have just now gotten 
around to Mr. Sheppard, who enjoys 
some local fame as the man who 
played "Sir Toby" in "Twelfth 
Night." He again rang the bell as 
the Rev. Morell. He is happy and 
very complacent, but has little or no 
idea to what extent his world is de- 
pendent on Candida. On this appar- 
ent hearty and robust self-confidence 
and on Candida's realization that 
without her support and help it would 
collapse into vacillation and helpless- 
ness, the plot 01 the play is construct- 
ed. Mr. Sheppard incorporated into 
his role the ioregoing elements and, 
while we venture to say that at times 
he lacked some of the animation that 
the scene demanded, he was in the 
thick of the tight for the most part. 
Alter all, it seems somewhat daring 
i or a rank — ana we say that advis- 
edly — for a rank amateur to criticize 
at ail one so versed in the art of act- 
ing ab the gentleman in question. 

Miss Rieser's "Prossy" Garnett was 
aamirabie; her portrayal of a tipsy 
teetotaler was very commendable. We 
especially liked also her technique in 
making evident, as the play progress- 
ed, the fact that she was in love with 
Morell. It was noticeable before it 
was made public in the scene with 
Marchbanks, and despite her prim- 
ness and general resemblance to a 
snapping turtle, we were forced to 
respect her and to regard her as quite 
an estimable young lady, if somewhat 
Victorian. 

The part of Rev. Mill was taken 
not by Mr. Hanley, as scheduled, but 
by Fred Nofer, the fool of "Twelfth 
Night." Incidentally, Miss Phillips 
and Mr. Nofer, along with Mr. Deet- 
er, are the only remaining members 
of the original Hedgerow company. 
Getting back to Mr. Nofer's Morell- 
worshipping, but somewhat less vol- 
uble, Rev. "Lesey" Mill, it will suffice 
to say that he performed quite cred- 
itably and did nothing to incur our 
frown of displeasure. 

The show as a whole was surpass- 
ingly well done. The acting was of a 
high standard, the set and lighting 
were excellent, and in the final analy- 
sis the affair won the approval of 
the entire audience. While individual 
interpretations possibly differed in 
varying degrees from what Shaw in- 
tended them to be, for the most part 
they were remarkably polished; the 
actors not only put over the obvious 
points of the play, they delved deep- 
er into the intricacies of human na- 
ture and emerged with a fairly ac- 
curate picture of life as it is. 

Since this is one of Shaw's credos, 
to cast off conventions and taboos and 
judge things for what they are, the 
actors were, we think, largely suc- 
cessful in their endeavors. At the 
same time their version led us at 
times to think that Shaw was laugh- 
ing, albeit politely, at just about 
everybody; and possibly he was. Our 
point is that the company offered am- 
ple proof of the fact that they know 
Shaw and, obviating certain human 
limitations, can put him over to an 
audience. Having now repeated our- 
selves several times for purposes of 
emphasis, we proceed to the final 
clean-up. 

It is not difficult to understand 
how Hedgerow succeeded, in a time of 
depression, in paying off a sizeable 
debt and at the same time inaugurat- 
ed a most ambitious program of ex- 
pansion. Everyone chips in when 
there is work to be done; the proper- 
ties and scenery used in the play 
were loaded in less than an hour, with 
all hands, including the actors who 
had just concluded a performance, 
helping. They are most economical, 
although not stingy, in financial mat- 
ters; and they like to handle things 
themselves. They would have nobody 



backstage during the show excepting 
members of the company. 

Mr. Metcalf is to be congratulated 
on his efficiency as stage manager in 
charge of production. He missed not 
one detail conducive to the illusion of 
reality insofar as conditions permit- 
ted. In short, he did his job well. And 
to Mr. Deeter and the rest of the 
company is due a vote of thanks. The 
evening was well worth while; and 
that, we believe, is as nice a thing 
a.s we could say without needless elab- 
oration.

ble, and to offer more opportunity 
for members of the class to partici- 
pate in their own class project. 

No rash statements are to be made 
at this juncture as far as definite 
plans are concerned, but as soon as 



arrangements are made and contracts 
signed with photographers, engrav- 
ers, and printers the work is expect- 
ed to proceed at an expeditious rate. 
Although much of the actual work 
on the yearbook will of necessity b< 3 
delayed until next year, nevertheless 
much progress can be made in draw- 
ing up a general working copy, or 
"dummy," and in working out gen- 
eral ideas as to arrangement, theme, 
and planning.

oach Frock 
Named Head 
of Court Loop 

Jerome "Jerry" Frock, head foot- 
ball coach at Lebanon Valley College 
and an assistant tutor in other sports 
there, was elected to the presidency 
of the Eastern Pennsylvania Colleg- 
iate Basketball league Tuesday eve- 
ning at a joint meeting of the basket 
ball and baseball leagues held in 
Gettysburg. The new prexy will serve 
during the 1938-1939 season of the 
Popular collegiate loop. Other officers 
chosen were J. Shober Barr, F. & M. 
basketball coach, vice president; and 
J. Stevens, of Drexel, secretary- 
treasurer. 

The other purpose of the meeting 
Was to award the trophies emblem- 
ati c of the baseball and basketball 
championships for the last year to 
Gettysburg College as the Bullet ath- 
e tes copped the flags in both leagues. 

During the session, the college rep- 
resentatives took under advisement 
* e application of Bucknell Univer- 
s % for admission to the basketball 
£ lr cuit and readmission to the base- 
al l league. The Bisons were former 
me mbers of the baseball loop and

Elect Goodman 
As Y President 



I. R. C. Entertains 
German Lecturer 
at Meeting 

The bi-monthly meeting of the I. R. 
C, held last night at the home of Dr. 
Stevenson, was addressed by Dr. Max 
Brauer, lately arrived at Lebanon 
Valley sponsored by the Universal 
Christian Council for Life and Work. 

After a short self-introduction in 
which he told of his leadership in Ger- 
man cooperatives two decades ago, his 
political background, and how he was 
exiled from Germany by the Nazis, he 
discussed the recent developments in 
Europe and how events have been 
shaped and molded by conditions in 
the last several years. 

He traced the development of the 
friendship between Hitler and Mus- 
solini and how they have acted in ac- 
cord with each other, even before the 
declaring of the Rome-Berlin axis. 
When Mussolini decided to embark on 
an imperialistic policy in Africa, he 
gave free rein to Hilter in Europe. 
Therefore, Austria was already sacri- 
ficed by Italy to Germany in the 
summer of 1936, and eight days later 
the Franco uprising in Spain began, 
and Germany raised military service 
to two years. 

The Western powers were caught 
unprepared and so, perforce, adopted 
a policy of non-intervention. The 
English were willing to sacrifice the 
whole of southeastern Europe to keep 
peace and France was forced to fol- 
low. 



Horn, Ness, Weirick 
and Miller Also Win ; 
Forty-Two Votes Cast 

The annual election for posts of 
officers in the Lebanon Valley Y As- 
sociation took place Wednesday (yes- 
terday) in the Y room in the Men's 
Dorm. About 20% of the electorate 
was represented in the balloting, with 
forty-two votes being cast. 

The officers for the year 1938-39 
are as follows: President, Benjamin 
Goodman; Vice-President, Paul 
Horn; Secretary, John Ness; Treas- 
urer, Earnest Weirick; and Pianist, 
Charles Miller. Miller's name was 
uncontested. 

Goodman, in a post-election state- 
ment, declared that, while the stan- 
dard set by the work of this year's 
cabinet and officers was very high, 
yet with the fullest cooperation on 
the part of the new cabinet, not yet 
chosen, and officers, that standard 
could not only be equalled, but per- 
haps surpassed. Weirick, reelected 
as treasurer, stood in full accord with 
this statement. 

The election was in charge of Dan- 
iel Shearer and John Miller, senior 
members of this year's cabinet. Rob- 
ert Dinsmore served as registrar and 
board-of -elections. 



Life Work Recruits 
Hold Banquet 

Last Monday evening the Life 
Work Recruits were hosts to Dr. and 
Mrs. J. Bruce Behney at a Banquet 
held in the Small Dining Hall. Dr. 
Behney, an L. V. alumnus, now pro- 
fessor of Church History at Bone- 
brake Theological Seminary, Dayton, 
Ohio, was the principal speaker on 
the occasion. President Lynch was 
also called upon to address the group. 

Paul Slonaker acted as toastmas- 
er for the affair. 

Dr. Behney had previously inter- 
viewed several ministerial students 
during his stay on campus.

L Club Sponsors Sports Dance 



The L Club will sponsor a dance 
to be held in the College gym on Sat- 
urday night. It will celebrate the 
successful football season of last fall 
and the highly successful basketball 
season of the past winter, the great- 
est in the history of the school. 

The motif of the affair will be 
Sports, with costumes being worn to 
fit in with the dominant feature. The 
question of music has not yet been 
decided by the committee on arrange- 
ments, with the alternatives of a 
dance orchestra or the nickelodeon, 
which is used for the recreation 
hours, being offered. 

The master of ceremonies will be 
Charlie McCarthy, or at least a local 
copy of that popular entertainer. He 
may or may not be assisted by his 



Goin' To The Prom? 

Spring is here to stay and with 
it comes the gala news of a big 
time in the Hershey Park Ballroom 
May 13, when all the campus ro- 
mances will be in full bloom, and 
the air will be filled with sweet 
music furnished by the Diplomats. 
This is one of the outstanding so- 
cial functions of the season and 
promises to be a most colorful af- 
fair in the merry season when a 
young man's fancy lightly turns to 
thoughts of — whom he will take to 
the Junior Prom. 

The Diplomats are a well-known 
local band with great potentiality, 
being rated as the tenth swing 
band in the country recently. The 
prom leader has not been chosen 
as yet but the election will be held 
in the near future. Latest news 
reports hot over the wire tell us 
that Grover Zerbe will be there — 
will you ? 



sponsor, Eddie Bergen. The remain- 
der of the floor show, as now planned, 
will be taken care of by local per- 
formers, prominent among whom will 
be the versatile Dutch Hackman. An- 
other feature of the floor entertain- 
ment will be Lebanon Valley's wam- 
pus babies. 

Admission to the dance will be a 
charge of 25c, stag or drag. The com- 
mittee in charge of the affair con- 
sists of what might be called "un- 
der-gradutes" of the L Club, or those 
who have not yet obtained their L 
Club sweaters. These men are George 
Katchmer, August Herman, Daniel 
Seiverling, Fred Bosnyak, Frank 
Lennon, and Frank Kuhn. The ad- 
vertising done about the campus is 
in charge of Seiverling. 



Int. Relations 
Club Members 
Travel to Phila. 

The final meeting of the Philadel 
phia branch of the Foreign Policy As 
sociation was held Saturday, March 
19, at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel, 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Betty 
Bender, Jane Ehrhart, Jack Miller 
and Joe Thomas, student members of 
the association, accompanied Dr. E 
H. Stevenson to the meeting. 

The topic for discussion was the 
"Good Neighbor's Dilemma" or "Will 
Fascist Influence in Latin America 
force the U. S. to defend the Monroe 
Doctrine?" The speakers for the dis- 
cussion were Samuel Guy Inman and 
Jerome Davis. 

Dr. Inman was the adviser of the 
United States delegation to the Bue- 
nos Aires Conference and has visit- 
ed Latin America annually since 1918. 
Dr. Davis, president of the American 
Federation of Teachers, recently re- 
turned from South America, where he 
studied the Latin American situation. 

Dr. Samuel Inman stated in his 
speech that the only solution to the 
Good Neighbor Dilemma is coopera- 
tion upon the part of the United 
States with the Latin American coun- 
tries. Such a solution would prevent 
the rise of Fascism and encourage de- 
mocratic peace. 



Neg. Team Returns 
with Two Defeats 

Curvin Dellinger and Raymond 
Smith represented Lebanon Valley as 
members of the men's negative de- 
bating team in New York City last 
week and week-end, returning Sun- 
day. 

The first team met by Dellinger 
and Smith was Upsala at East Or- 
ange, New Jersey. The verdict was 
returned in favor of L. V. C. On Fri- 
day afternoon the team lost an au- 
dience decision to the City College of 
New York, while a debate that even- 
ing was dropped to Wagner College 
of Staten Island on the decision of a 
critic judge. 

Between times the team visited the 
New York Stock Exchange and other 
points of interest. 



Brauer Scores 
German Nazis 
in Interviews 



Germany on War Basis ; 
Recovery a Result of 
Rearmament Programme 



Following the address given by Dr. 
Max Brauer at the I. R. C. last even- 
ing he was "interviewed" by the mem- 
bers of the Club on matters of the 
position of the Jew in Germany, the 
essence of Naziism, Hitler's character, 
etc., all of which things are being dis- 
cussed, heatedly sometimes, in the 
American college class-room, dormi- 
tory, and discussion group today. 

The main-spring and essence of 
Naziism in Germany is not persecu- 
tion of the Jews, religious persecution 
and substitution, nor crushing of the 
labor movement and organization. All 
these things are part of a program, 
says Dr. Brauer, of Hitler's for Ger- 
man domination of Europe, of re- 
venge for the crushing defeat of 1914- 
18. The entire country is on war foot- 
ing and organized to a state of war 
efficiency. This was decided when 
Schacht was dismissed as minister of 
national economy and officers put in 
his place. The old Berlin-to-Bagdad 
ideal of the kaisers is being recreated 
by Hitler's Pan-Germanic idea and 
ideal, whereby all the Germans in 
Europe shall be united in one great 
state. 

Brauer especially brought out his 
anti-Nazi sentiments in discussing 
how the schools have changed in Ger- 
many under the present regime as 
well as Hitler's attitude toward edu- 
cation. According to Hitler all edu- 
cation, science, and art must be made 
to serve the state. There is no indivi- 
dual research carried on, for science 
must not develop its critical faculty, 
but must serve the state and party in 
blind obedience. Applied to all 
branches of intellectual life and ac- 
tivity the result is cultural stagnation. 

Since a dictator lives in constant 
fear, the plastic minds of youth are 
taught only what the dictator likes. 
Out of seven thousand university pro- 
fessors two thousand were dismissed, 
and the cream of the scientific crop 
driven out of the country. The length 
of high school and intermediate school 
courses has been shortened to allow 
military training at an earlier age, 
and the curriculum has been modified 
for the same purpose. To enter a 
higher institution a boy, especially 
one who is intelligent, has to have the 
permission of a local Nazi official, and 
mostly Nazi favorites enter univer- 
sities. 

The old German classics are being- 
rejected wholesale. Any books or parts 
of books expressing freedom of 
thought are either banned or emascu-

# we agree 

"Thank God, this is not America, 
where Al Capone still lives," Comrade 
Stalin breathed in relief as he adjured 
his judges to pronounce swift and speedy 
sentences upon alleged "traitors" in the 
recent Moscow trials. 

And we too echo in relief, "Thank 
God, that America is not identified with 
Russia — or Germany, or Italy or any 
Europeon country which lives in the 
paralyzing miasma of international hate 
on the one hand and fear of the central 
government on the other. 

Again we are deviating from our pol- 
icy and dabbling in international topics, 
but we can't help it. Something made 
us downright "mad" the other day. We 
were present at a gathering where the 
"Star Spangled Banner" was being 
played. While most of the crowd showed 
the proper respect for the national an- 
them, there were a large number who, 
far from remaining quiet and at atten- 
tion, insisted upon talking and moving 
around— and there were men who did 
not remember to remove their hats. 

The United States teaches and re- 
quires but little symbolism in its politi- 
cal ritual. The swastika, fasces, and 
Nazi salutes and ceremonial are part 
of a vast, elaborate imagery signifying 
the omnipotence and omnipresence of the 
totalitarian state. What little of this 
ceremonial our political creed does in- 
clude, we ought render freely and glad- 
ly, as an expression of our faith and 
appreciation of a nation that is one of 
the last strongholds of international 
sanity on the face of the earth. 

For such persons who are not disposed 
to render such courtesy, we recommend 
a brief stay in anyone of numerous 
countries where the height (or depth) 
of one's demonstrative powers, is taken 
as an index of his devotion to the gov- 
ernment. We feel that such an experi- 
ence would inculcate a sense of pride 
into them; pride of their American citi- 
zenship. 

And so we extend a hand of hearty 
agreement to Comrade Stalin. We got 
rid of dictators in 1776, but we still 
have "Scarf ace" Al. 




BEYONDT^CftMPUS 



Two men students at the Univer- 
sity of Alabama have learned that 
truth, like honesty, is a pretty 
good policy. 

The other day the pair, rigged 
out in tennis togs, went to the uni- 
versity's tennis courts for a few 
sets. The varsity team was prac- 
ticing, so the two sat down and 
waited more than an hour for a 
court. 

Finally the court was relin- 
quished and the duo hastened to 
occupy it. But no sooner had they 
beguii to play than another pair 
approached and informed them 
they had come to take over the 
court for varsity practice. 

Said one of the disgruntled pair: 
"We're out for the varsity too. 
Would you mind waiting until we 
finish?" 

Said one of the newly-arrived: 
"I'm glad to know you boys. I'm 
the coach."

Newest kind of collegiantic 
party is the one held a couple of 
weeks ago by University of Mis- 
souri journalism students. 

It was a "Revelry on Rails" — 
and was a formal affair staged on 
a moving Wabash R. R. train. 
Guests were provided with yard- 
long tickets covering passage and 
stopovers in each of the several 
attractions offered in the cars of 
the special train. 

After traveling and partying 
continuously for five hours, guests 
found they hadn't been outside the 
city limits!

Florence George, beauteous Chi- 
cago cpera singer, has caused quite 
a furore among University of Pitts- 
burgh admirers: Pi K. A. members 
claim her as their "Dream Girl," 
but a Phi Gam says its all wrong, 
for "Florence is my cousin, and 
she is coming to Pittsburgh to our 
fraternity dance this spring." Said 
a member of Alpha Delta Pi, sor- 
ority affiliation of Miss George: 
''We regard the fight as very silly."

The Campus Camera 



our little essay 

... on elections several weeks ago, ap- 
parently did little good. At least, it had 
little effect on the "Y" elections yes- 
terday. Please understand, we have no 
quarrel with the results ! We believe that 
they were very fortunate choices. But 
what we deplore, is the fact that only 
one-fifth of the eligible voters took ad- 
vantage of their franchise. We caution 
the student body against indifference, as 
well as against misdirected, or thought- 
less participation. Remember the slogan 
during the days of local option: "A 
stay-at-home vote is a wet one." 



Amy Montieth, Junior: That 
funny feeling. 

Ferne Poet, Freshman: The 
temperature. I don't have to wear

Dorothy Kreamer, Senior: The

Curvin Dellinger, Senior: The

Evelyn Ware, Freshman: Spring 
clothes. 

Dean Aungst, Sophomore: Birds, 
flowers and girls. 

Arlene Hoffman, Junior: The fun 
we have on the campus. 

Bernard Bentzel, Freshman: I 
don't like it. 

Louise Stoner, Senior: The cam- 
pus is so pretty when it begins to 
bloom. 

Roger Saylor, Senior: The be- 
ginning of baseball season. 

Jean Strickhouser, Freshman: 
Love. 

Ellen Ruppersberger, Freshman: 
A bird. 

John Zettlemoyer, Junior: The 
kind of clothes the girls wear.

| L. V. Stage ] 

The Kalo-Delphian stage produc- 
tion is making headway under Bob 
Spahn's direction. The play is "R. U. 
R." (Rossum's Universal Robots), the 
story of man's attempt to create me- 
chanical workers which are known as 
"robots." These beings are sold to 
various countries and at last revolt 
against their makers. It is a play 
determined to capture the imagination 
and emotions of the audience, and is 
as well a treat in that its theme is 
novel for the L. V. stage. 



This play will reveal a number of 
new personalities on the stage. Among 
the surprises, you will see Lloyd 
Beamesderfer in his first stage ap- 
pearance since three years ago when 
he acted in Aristophenes' "The 
Frogs." Marshall Frey, George Mun-

We wish to make a prediction con- 
cerning a certain budding actress 
whom you last saw in a Wig 
and Buckle play. She is charm- 
ing, captivating and demure m 
her part as heroine of W 



drama. Her versatility in acting 



will 



be proved when you see her step from 
her debut, a child's part, into the lov- 
able character she assumes in "R. j*' 
R." She is, my loyal playgoers, Myrtle 
Leff.

Valley Nine 
Gets First Call 
to Practice 

Monday, Coach Emerson Metoxen 
c alled forth the candidates for the 
j938 edition of the Lebanon Valley 
baseball team. A goodly number of 
^pefuls, veterans and rookies an- 
gered the call to bats and balls, 
rjkis early practice gives the team a 
little over a month to get in shape 
f r the first game. 

Only two members of last spring's 
pine are not available for the team 
a gain this season, those being the ace 
pitcher, Paul Billett, and the first- 
baseman, Frank Poloniak. The for- 
mer will be hard to replace; the lat- 
ter probably not so hard. This leaves 
three-quarters of the infield, a trio 
of catchers, a pitcher, and a sundry 
s et of outfielders as veterans to form 
nucleus for the nine. 

Prospects for the pitching depart- 
ment include four who seem the like- 
ly starters, Marshall Frey, Bill 
Scherfel, George Katchmer, and 
Frank Kuhn. Frey saw considerable 
service last year and should prove 
more valuable this season when he is 
not overshadowed by such a talented 
hurler as Paul Billett. Scherfel 
picked up some pointers while on the 
bench last spring and may be ready 
to crash the box scores this time. 
Katchmer injured his arm on the eve 
of last year's campaign, but seems 
ready to go this trip. He has a world 
of stuff, but has shown a tendency 
toward wildness. Frank Kuhn, a 
freshman, is heralded as a real pitch- 
er, but only time will tell if he is the 
real goods. 

There is an abundance of catching 
material, so competition should be 
keen for the receiver's job. Eddie 
Kress and Chris Walk, who alternat- 
ed last campaign, are back in har- 
ness again, as is Jimmy "Whitman, 
also a holdover from the squad of 
last spring. The outstanding new- 
comer is Barney Bentzel, the York 
flash who cannot be counted out of 
the running. 

The exeprienced infielders are Ralph 
Billett, the second sacker, Dan Sei- 
verling, the short stop, and Captain 
Adolph Capka the third-baseman. A 
new guardian of the initial sack must 
be found. A possibility is Bill Tryan 
from New Jersey. 

Any attempt to name the personnel 
of the outfield would be mere guess- 
work. There are numerous candidates 
for the three positions, and no doubt 
toe best batters will get the call if 
tfl ey have any fielding ability at all. 
The weakness of last year's team was 
batting and therefore hitting will be 
stressed this spring.

Day Students Hold 
Ping-PoDg Tourney 

The women day-students held a 
ping pong tournament in Delphian 
Hall over a period of one week, from 
last Tuesday to Wednesday of this 
week. Jean Houck defeated Kay 
Shank in the semi-finals of the upper 
bracket, while Aimee Witmer defeat- 
ed Lela Lopes in the lower bracket. 
Jean Houck vanquished her opponent 
and won the crown. Competition was 
keen throughout the tournament, and 
practically the whole women day stu- 
dent body participated. 



Girls' Volleyball 
Begins next Week 

A volley ball tournament between 
teams from each of the dormitories 
and from the day students will be- 
gin next week and continue for two 
weeks. If the weather is favorable 
a net will be placed outside for one 
of the games. It is uncertain how 
many teams will be formed. 

On Monday archery will begin for 
the spring season. Miss Henderson 
expects to produce an archery team 
this year, for which she already has 
several prospects.

A second half rally in the game 
with the Juniors last Tuesday gave 
the Sophomores a tie with the Sen- 
iors for first place in the Interclass 
Basketball League, each team having 
won five games and suffered a single 
defeat. The playoff game will be 
staged in the Alumni gymnasium this 
evening. 

The scoring leader for the Sopho- 
mores in the rough game against the 
Juniors was Dennis Geesey with 20 
points, while the loser's high man 
was Carl Dempsey, having 11. John 
Lynch of the winners also had 11. 

The game itself was very good in 
the first half which ended with the 
combatants tied at 19-19. In the sec- 
ond half the Sophomores pulled away 
and simultaneously the game got 
rougher. The climax occurred in the 
final minutes when George Munday 
and Roy Weidman had a short-lived 
scrap.

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE, THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1938 



Students Lose 
900 lbs. over 
Examinations 



Bureau of Ed. Survey 
Reports Results of 
Cramming Practice 

Students of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege paid for their cramming in the 
last examinations with a loss of 900 
pounds in weight, it is estimated by 
the Bureau of Educational Surveys, 
New York City. 

The Bureau arrived at the figure 
by multiplying an average of two 
pounds weight loss reported by a rep- 
resentative group by 90 per cent of 
Lebanon Valley College students who 
engage in intensive study before and 
during examination periods. 

According to the Bureau, profes- 
sors and textbooks are as much to 
blame for cramming as the students 
themselves. Too often the instructor 
does not provide his class with a suf- 
ficiently clear overview of the entire 
course, or does not review the course 
in outline form from time to time, 
with the result that the student be- 
comes hopelessly involved in a mass 
of facts and ideas, and resorts to 
cramming as a final, desperate meas- 
ure. Sometimes the instructor is to 
blame for not couching lectures in 
terms understandable to the average 
student, and frequently the textbook 
lacks continuity and organization, or 
presents the course in too ponderous 
and technical a manner for the av- 
erage student's comprehension. This 
is particularly true of the 52% of 
all students who, according to Dr. 
John Black Johnson, retired dean of 
the University of Minnesota College 
of Science, Literature and Arts, can 
never become "successful students." 
Students in this group would never 
pass at all but for the use of college 
outlines or other supplementary aids 
to study. 




Dr. Brauer Scores 
German Nazis 



(Continued from page 1) 



NEW ROMANTIC TEAM — Jolnn 
Payne, baritone, and Florence 
George, coloratura soprano of the 
Chicago Civic Opera, are cast op- 
posite each other in Paramount's 
"College Swing," as the screen's 
newest romantic and singing team.

anoke College, University of Vir- 
ginia, and Columbia University. 
Miss George is an Alpha Delta Pi

lated. Neither Goethe nor Kant are in 
good standing, the latter because he 
speaks of eternal peace, an idea com- 
pletely foreign to Naziism. Volumes of 
books to the number of twenty-one 
thousand were burned at the Univer- 
sity of Breslaur. For these classics 
Hitler has substituted his own "bible," 
"Mein Kampf," and the literary out- 
put of Propaganda Minister Goebbels. 

In answer to a question of what 
the attitude of the United States 
should be if war breaks out in Europe 



Dr. Brauer replied that this country 
does not need to send soldiers to 
Europe, but it must supply and sell 
goods to the countries engaged, pro- 
bably England and her allies, or face 
economic ruin. It took a year for the 
United States to get a fair amount of 
fighting men over seas in the World 

War, but Brauer predicts that by that 
time in the next war there will not 
be one stone left standing on another. 
And although our foreign trade is 
only 10% of the total amount, yet it 
is the important 10%, without which 
the U. S. would go down in an econo- 
mic crash in four weeks. He strongly 
condemned a policy of self-sufficiency 
for the United States. 



In discussing the economic situation 
of Germany today Brauer emphasized 
the fact that the economic recovery 
under Hitler is built on rearmament, 
80% of industry being kept busy with 
the rearmament program. Thus it 
seems as if the whole system of col- 
lective security, of a United States of 
Europe envisioned by Stresemann and 
Briand, is being laid aside, for the 
time being at least. Hitler is a maniac, 
says Brauer, who believes only in war. 
If he accepts colonies, credits, and 
concessions at the hands of other 
nations, he will only hang himself. 

Although formerly mayor of Al- 
tona, near Hamburg, a city with a 
population of 280,000, an officer of a 



cooperative management board, ail( j 
the president of the provincial di e j. 
at present Brauer is a virtual man' 
without-a-country, since his German 
citizenship was taken by the Nazi s 
Since his exile from his homeland he 
has been in Austria, Switzerland, and 
France. He has also been a repre- 
sentative of the League of Nations in 
China. 



"Man is no longer a personality but 
a civil war. There is always a con- 
flict within him, between his animal 
heritage and his spiritual heritage." 
Dr. William A. Eddy, President of Ho- 
bart and William Smith College, de- 
scribes the Individual of 1938.

Vol. XIV 



ANNVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, THURSDAY, MARCH 31. 1938 



No. 26 



Selection of 
play Revealed 
by Clio-Philo 

Societies to Produce 
"Pride and Prejudice"; 
Struble Will Direct 

The committee on the annual Philo- 
Clio anniversary play has announced 
"pride and Prejudice" as its selection 
for this year's production. The script 
to be used will be the Helen Jerome 
version, which had a run of two 
years on Broadway. 

Dr. George Struble will act as di- 
rector for the play. Scripts have 
been sent for, and tryouts will be 
held Monday afternoon and evening. 

The play itself is a portrayal of 
English home life in the 18th cen- 
tury, and although most of the char- 
acters will not be in costume appro- 
priate to the time, several old moth- 
ers and aunts will be clothed in keep- 
ing with the era. 

The story concerns one Mrs. Ben- 
nett who is busily engaged in getting 
her three daughters engaged and mar- 
ried to members of the nobility. She 
does succeed in pushing two of them 
into the state of connubial bliss, but 
the third, Elizabeth, refuses to be 
pushed. 

Because of her choicy attitude she 
represents Prejudice, while Pride en- 
ters the story in the person of an ex- 
tremely eligible young bachelor noble 
who leases an apartment in the house 
next to the Bennett family. The story 
ends happily when Pride and Preju- 
dice find themselves, or make them- 
selves, suited to each other and en- 
snare themselves in the well-known 
bonds of matrimony. 



'40 Quittapahilla 
Signs Contracts 

Contracts have already been signed 
by Carl Ehrhart and Stanley Deck 
for the 1940 Quittapahilla with Zam- 
s ky Studios of Philadelphia and the 
Jahn and Oilier Engraving Company 
°f Chicago, Illinois. 

By signing both photographer and 
engraver at this rather early hour 
the staff was able to take advantage 
°f a certain advance of prices in 
both concerns, as part of a nation- 
wide increase. 

Both engraver and printer are ac- 
knowledged as among the leaders in 
" e ir respective fields, and both are 
n °t only well-equipped for year-book 
' Ser vice, but serve a large and widely- 
-read constituency of colleges. 

The Zamsky Studios is doing the 
Photography work for the 1939 Quit- 
^Pahilla, and this work is expected 
be outstanding in the book. 

The Jahn and Oilier Engraving 

0Q ipany employs a personal repre- 
^tative working out of Harrisburg, 

ho assist in making up the 

u gh and finished lay-out or working 
i J ail » and will further aid in the 
[| fo gress of the year-book with tech- 
c Ca l advice and suggestions. The 
^ 'ttpany, through its representative, 
as allowed a 5% increase in dis- 
^ rates, as based on the prices 
the national engravers' scale, 
^ lc h will help greatly in cutting 
n the expenses of the engraving. 



"V" Officers Nominated 

The election for officers of the 
new Y. W. C. A. cabinet will take

Nominees for the various offices 
in the cabinet are as follows : Pres- 
ident, Dorothy Yeakel, Audrie Fox; 
Vice-President, Louise Saylor, 
Evelyn Miller, Jeanne Schock; Cor- 
responding Secretary, Floda Trout,

Null. 

I. R. C. to Discuss 
Foreign Policy 

At the bi-monthly meeting of the 
International Relations Club, to be 
held next Thursday evening, Doyle 
Sumner will present a report on the 
book, Is America Afraid? by Living- 
ston Hartley. This is one of the books 
acquired for the library through the 
facilities of the I. R. C, books per- 
taining to current national and in- 
ternational problems. They are the 
gifts of the Carnegie Endowment for 
International Peace. 

Hartley calls for a strong con- 
structive and permanent foreign pol- 
icy for the United States. He shows 
the danger of the present passive for- 
eign policy of this country, when for 
the first time in modern history, as 
he sees it, the world's most powerful 
nation refuses to employ its para- 
mount position for its own national 
ends. How America can use its pre- 
eminence to insure its own lasting 
welfare and peace is brought out. 

The author also traces the rise to 
power, both present and future, of 
nations whose aims and methods 
threaten not only world peace, but 
traditional American ideals. The book 
portrays the status of other nations, 
whose success or failure in inter- 
national affairs America dare not ig- 
nore. 

In addition there are several chap- 
ters on the question of Neutrality and 
the League of Nations. 

Mr. Hartley is a former official of 
the State Department, and he contri- 
butes feature articles on foreign af- 
fairs to the Washington Post. 



New Catalogue 
Contains Few 
Adjustments 

Changes Noted in 
Conservatory and 
History Courses 

In line with present-day tender cies 
in liberal arts education to attacn 
greater importance to the fine arts, 
Lebanon Valley has arranged to make 
available more generous offering;? in 
Music as free electives in the regular 
college course. The presence of a 
Conservatory of Music gives Leba- 
non Valley all the more superior fa- 
cilities for following this plan. 

On pages 64 and 65 of the 1938 
Catalogue just published are listed 
the courses in non-applied music of- 
fered as electives. These include 
courses in Sight Reading, Dictation, 
Harmony, History of Music, and 
Chorus. 

Admission to a particular course is 
based on a knowledge of music suffi- 
cient to understand the subject mat- 
ter. 

A minor of twenty hours in music, 
of which at least four hours must be 
in applied music, may also be taken 
by liberal arts students, with the se- 
lection of courses supervised and ap- 
proved by the Music Department ad- 
viser. 

It is hoped by the administration 
of the College that students will tak^ 
advantage of this opportunity to add 
this cultural element to their educa- 
tion and thus widen their field of 
knowledge. 

Two years ago several history 
courses were reduced in number of 
hours, in order to enable the student 
to obtain a wider range of subjects 
in that field. However, it was found 
that the diminished time was not suf- 
ficient to allow for a thorough cover- 
age of the material on hand. There- 
fore, in the recent catalogue, the His- 
tory courses formerly numbered 24, 
26, 44, and 34-A are once again listed 
as six hour courses. History 34-B and 
44-C remain at four hours. 

The increase in tuition fee of twen 
ty-five dollars, and the change of the 
date of the Easter vacation have pre 
viously been noted. The date of the 
Kalozetean Anniversary has also been 
shifted to an earlier period. 

Besides these changes the differ- 
ence between the 1938 Catalogue and 
last year's lies in the class rosters. 



Frosh Frolic with April Fools 



The Freshman Class invites all lov- 
ers of the dance to attend the Frosh 
April Fool Frolic at the Annville high 
school gymnasium on Friday, April 
1 from eight to eleven forty-five 
o'clock. 

In spite of the fact that plans for 
the dance have been completed in the 
past week, this promises to be one of 
the largest informal Frosh Frolics 
ever held at Lebanon Valley. The or- 
chestra committee has secured six 
members of the Greystone Orchestra, 
which has arranged its music that the 
initial letters of the first numbers of 
the dances spell "April Fool." 

The price of admission is seventy- 
five cents per couple, and programs 



1 



can be gotten from any member of the 
ticket committee. 

The following committees have 
worked enthusiastically in planning 
the dance: Ticket committee, Sam 
Derrick, Fred Brandt, Betty Ann 
Rutherford, Feme Poet, Frank Len- 
non, Gordon Streeter, Margaret Bord- 
well, Jeannette Kalbach and Louella 
Schindel. Orchestra committee, Feme 
Poet, Gordon Streeter, Sam Derrick 
and Carl Witmeyer. Program com- 
mittee, Maurice Erdman, Carl Witte- 
meyer, Margaret Bordwell, Jeannette 
Kalbach, Gordon Streeter and Feme 
Poet. Publicity committee, Margaret 
Bordwell, Louella Schindel and Jean- 
nette Kalbach. 



Deputation Travels 

in Northern Penna. 

Sunday, March 27, a group repre- 
sented the Life Work Recruits at 
Enders and Powls Valley near Hali- 
fax. Rev. William E. Sherriff is the 
minister of this charge. The speaker 
for the morning service was Howard 
Peffley, while Paul Slonaker spoke in 
the evening. The special music was 
furnished by Dennis Geesey, trombo- 
nist, and Ruth Hershey, pianist. Mr. 
Geesey played "The Lost Chord" by 
Sullivan, "The Rosary," by Nevin, 
and "My Song of Songs" by Clay 
Smith. Miss Hershey and Mr. Gees- 
oy spent some time at the home of 
Miss Irma Keifer, graduate of Leb- 
anon Valley College, class of '36. 
Lynn Kitzmiller entertained at his 
home Peffley and Slonaker. 

In the afternoon the latter group 
paid an interesting visit into the coal 
regions of Lykens and vicinity. Miss 
Hershey and Mr. Geesey were shown 
the "Last Raft" which was passing 
that section of the Susquehanna River. 
In the evening the deputation repre- 
sentatives returned to Annville. 



Philo Selects 
Hotel Brunswick 

In a hotly contested election yes- 
terday the members of the Philo Lit- 
erary Society designated the Hotel 
Brunswick in Lancaster as the site 
for the dinner-dance, to be held the 
evening of May Day, May 7. 

At a meeting held on Tuesday the 
society had decided to take the dance 
to the Harrisburger in Harrisburg. 
However, a subsequent investigation 
of the facilities of the hotel revealed 
that the ballroom was much too small 
for the needs of the society. This 
made a new election necessary. 

As the contest of yesterday finally 
resolved itself into alternatives of 
Hotel Traylor in Allentown and the 
Brunswick, a ten minute period was 
given the supporters of each to back 
up their selection. Following this the 
vote was taken which decided the is- 
sue. 

Curvin Dellinger, anniversary- 
president, who presided at the elec- 
tion, then made a plea for unity in 
thought and action among the mem- 
bers of the society, especially apro- 
pos in view of the very close election 
results. Now that the hotel site has 
been chosen, progress can be made 
more rapidly on the matter of the 
dinner itself, the orchestra, and oth- 
er arrangements. 

The Hotel Brunswick has definite 
advantages and seems to be the logi- 
cal choice. It is within easy travel- 
ling radius, has a large ballroom, and 
its cuisine leaves nothing to be de- 
sired for such a function. 



Science Group 
to Assemble 
at Bucknell U. 

Penna. Academy Meets 
to Hear Discussions 
on Phases of Science 

The annual meeting of the Penn- 
sylvania Academy of Science will be 
held on Friday and Saturday, April 
15 and 16, at Bucknell University. 
Professors Derickson, Grimm, and 
Light will attend from Lebanon Val- 
ley College. Dr. Light is secretary 
of the organization. 

Dr. George Ashley, president of 
the Academy, will deliver the an- 
nual lecture Friday evening on the 
subject, "How Old Is Man?" The 
lecture is open to the public. 

The program consists of several 
sessions, each devoted to a number of 
topical discussions of ten or fifteen 
minutes each on various phases of bi- 
ology* geology, zoology, and teaching 
of science. Professor Derickson will 
discuss "Necessity, the Mother of In- 
vention," using projection apparatus 
as an aid. Sixty-five of these topical 
discussions will be presented by pro- 
fessors from Pennsylvania colleges 
and representatives of other organi- 
zations in the scientific field. 

In the biology sessions the water 
birds of Chester County, the status 
of bat bending in the United States, 
and the principles involved in bio- 
logical staining, among other things, 
will furnish the topics for the short 
addresses. 

Climatic changes in Pennsylvania, 
the pre-glacial course of the Dela- 
ware River, and a "red-beds" type of 
copper deposit in Pennsylvania will

Music Festival 
Proves Successful 



Hygiene Films Shown 

Today at 1:30 and 2:30 Dr. 
Roberts of Harrisburg showed a 
motion picture on Social Hygiene 
in the Biology lecture room. At- 
tendance was compulsory for the 
members of the Hygiene classes, 
both men and women students, 
who were excused from other 
classes at the same hour. This mo- 
tion picture is an annual presen- 
tation at Lebanon Valley. 



The Sixth Annual Music Festival 
of the Conservatory held March 25 
at Engle Hall even exceeded expecta- 
tions. It always has been customary 
to present the Glee Club and Band 
giving numbers which constitute the 
bulk of their . work throughout the 
year, but in several ways this year's 
program is outstanding. 

In the first place all the numbers 
by the Glee Club all were used on 
the concert tour and by this time 
have a smooth, fine polish. The Club 
has not been getting rusty, but is be- 
ginning to assume a more profes- 
sional air. 

In the second place the mixed chor- 
us of over a hundred voices including 
all members of the Conservatory as 
well as special students, was an en- 
tirely new item for programs. Robert 
Clippinger conducted his own "Come, 
Thou Long-Expected Jesus," which 
was enthusiastically applauded. In 
the "Excerpts from Carmen," the so- 
loists were Mildred Gangwer, Chris- 
tine Yoder, and Earl Caton. 

The third reason for the popular- 
ity of this year's Festival was tne 
character of the program given by 
the Band in the evening concert. Ev- 
ery number was a gem, and the au- 
dience was especially delighted by the 
novelty of airplane sound effects in 
"Skyliner."

agitation 
at the astor 

Monopoly has always admittedly been 
an evil. However, there are cases where- 
in a monopoly may be so tempered by 
justice and common sense that its ob- 
noxious features may be completely ov- 
ershadowed. 

Unfortunately such is not the case 
with Annville's own peculiar monopoly, 
namely, the theatre industry. It is a 
monopoly that has developed some par- 
ticularly obnoxious and unpleasant fea- 
tures of its own. We don't like the blood 
and thunder pictures it has been get- 
ting, we don't like its policy, and we 
ion't like the attitude it assumes to- 
ward its patrons. We are not personally 
acquainted with Manager Piersol, so we 
haven't the pleasure of disliking him 
to boot. 

But we do dislike his policies. Any 
theatre manager, and especially one w;th 
his propensities for litigation, should 
know that the purchase of a general 
admission ticket entitles the holder to 
any seat so designated, regardless of 
race, color, or previous condition of ser- 
vitude. The fact* that the holder hap- 
pens to be a minor, or a college student 
should not militate against him. Furth- 
ermore, a man with Mr. Piersol's rev- 
erence for Law and Order should real- 
ize that the privileges conferred by that 
ticket are not to be revoked without the 
refund of the purchase price. 

In short, we recommend, that if the 
Astor theatre is to continue to merit 
the good will and consequent patronage 
of the students and friends of the col- 
lege, that the management abandon its 
nearsighted and blundering attitude of 
absolutism, based upon the unwarrant- 
ed assumption that the people of Ann- 
ville are entirely dependent upon it for 
their cinemal sustenance. After all, 
there are some really good theatres in 
this vicinity which are not too far dis- 
tant for local patronage. 



(0 civilization 
marches on 

Mr. Ellery Sedgwick's glowing picture 
of Rebel Spain is the subject of the fol- 
lowing editorial which appeared in the 
New York World-Telegram on March 
10, 1938: 

Ellery Sedgwick, editor of the Atlan- 
tic Monthly, returning from a tour of 
Spain as a personal guest of Generalis- 
simo Franco, reported his delighted ob- 
servation that the dictator had eliminat- 
ed the slums in all territories captured 
by his armies. 

That is basic policy, said Mr. Sedg- 
wick, because, "It is universally be- 
lieved that victories in the eternal war 



against the Reds depend to a large 
extent on improvement in hous- 
ing." 

No one who ever looked at pho- 
tographs of General Franco's ad- 
vance can have any doubt of his 
zeal for slum clearance. He has 
cleared virtually all the slums, we 
understand, in Teruel, Gijon, Bil- 
bao, Guernica and scores of other 
cities. For that matter, he has 
cleared cathedrals, mansions, mon- 
uments and business blocks along 
with the slums. Where there were 
no slums to clear, he created them. 




BEYONDn^CftMPUS 



The U. S. Supreme Court, top 
judicial arbiter of differences of 
opinion, has been called upon to 
rule as to whether or not inter- 
collegiate football is an education- 
al activity. 

Solicitor General Robert H. 
Jackson has asked the court to 
rule that the University of Geor- 
gia School of Technology must 
pay taxes on football game admis- 
sions — a ruling that would affect 
gate receipts at stadia throughout 
the U. S. 

Government lawyers hold that 
"at neither school is participation 
in football a prerequisite to grad- 
uation, and no credit is given 
therefor toward a degree." 

Lawyers for the colleges main- 
tain that in staging the games 
their clients were "engaged in the 
performance of an essential gov- 
ernmental function." 

Youth of today have a perfect 
right to engage in peace-propa- 
ganda activities, in the opinion of 
Hunter College's President, Eu- 
gene Colligan.

L. V. Stage 1 

Among the novelties to be antici- 
pated in the spring stage productions 
on the L. V. campus, we've discov- 
ered hidden perseverance in the per- 
sonalities of Lloyd Beamesderfer, 
Dinty Nagle, and Charlie Raab. These 
three have either sympathetic girl 
friends or understanding wives. For 
your enlightenment, watch the whis- 
kers come into their own. "Beamie" 
is cultivating a mustache, Nagle a 
goatee, and (what gets us) Charlie 
Raab a full beard and bald head. If 
any information comes your way that 
can pull us out of the muddle, write 
to us in care of this station.

Meanwhile producer Spohn goes 
ahead with an extremely futuristic 
set. After all, the scene is laid in 
the year 1970. The characters as well 
are developing and polishing their 
parts. Clarence Lehman showed his 
colors in "The Women Have Their 
Way" and this time he plays an even 
more lovable role. We know you'll 
like him. And while we're talking 
about character parts, we tell y oU 
confidentially to watch out for the 
little piece of Edna Mae Oliver dy- 
namite. Anna Mae Bomberger is a 
tasty take-off of that humorous per- 
sonality. Watch her! 

* * * 

Plays seem to have a talent f° r 
starting things. Take, for instance, 
the fact that the men outnumber the 
women in the Kalo-Delphian produc- 
tion. This has led the males int<j 
green fits until they compromised an 
decided to take turns walking 
the girls to their respeetive dorrnito r 
ies. Who said wars are a necessary 
evil !

Not to leave the Philo-Clio P roS ' 
pects out in the cold, suffice it to s i 



deci- 
as 



that they finally arrived at a 
sion. Casting will begin as soon 
the scripts arrive, and may we & 
our hopes that tryouts for this P 
will reveal more new faces on the 
V. stage.

It looks as though by 1940 we may 
have a nine or even ten club basket 
ball loop, since Dickinson, Bucknell, 
an d Juniata are all seeking admission 
The first two have very good chances 
f being granted membership, but 
, Juniata may be rejected because of 
the great distance between Hunting 
i don and the other sites of the mem- 
bers. Bucknell had tried to get in be 
fore this, but they were turned down 
because they lacked adequate playing 
facilities. Now, however, they have 
a new gymnasium in which to play so 
that objection is removed. Since the 
1939 schedule is already completed, 
there will be no enlargement of the 
circuit until 1940. 

9 • 
The baseball league also faces 
the prospect of enlargement in the 
near future. Bucknell dropped out 
for this season because they had 
expected to abolish the sport. At 
the request of the student body, 
however, they reconsidered and will 
have a team. They have now ap- 
plied for readmission into the loop 
Simultaneously with Bucknell's 
i withdrawal Muhlenberg was admit 
ted, thus holding the membership 
at seven. 

• • 

Up Huntingdon way the Juniata 
Indians are planning a big scalping 
party in baseball uniforms. The In- 
dians were the league champs in its 
first two years of existence, 1932-33, 
but since then they have just been 
also-rans. The time has arrived when 
they are blood-thirsty and want that 
pennant back in the mountains again. 
Adequate proof of this is that the 
batterymen had already started in- 
door workouts on the last day of Feb- 
ruary. Prospects are pretty good be- 
cause they have a very effective left- 

, hander by the name of Roher return- 
ing to do their hurling. During the 

, Easter Vacation they will journey 
southward for a series of games. 

• • 
Speaking of southern trips, the 

Drexel Dragons are on one at pres- 
ent. On Monday they played 
Bridgewater College in the first of 
a series of six games and won 5-4 
in eleven innings. The star of the 
Drexel attack was none other than 
our old friend Lignelli. Remem- 
ber him on the Lebanon basketball 
court? These southern jaunts seem 
to be an annual affair with the 
Dragons, but when they get into 
East Penn League competition they 
have not fared any better than the 
teams which have not been able to 
have a trip. 



Among the players that have faced 
° u *" nine in the last three years is one 
Wh -o seems destined to spend the sea- 
p° n in the big leagues, that being 
et e Sivess, the former Dickinson 
P'tcher. Two springs ago he pinned 
ack Valley's ears at Carlisle. Later 
^ at season he joined the Philadel- 
la Nationals, winning several 
jj ai *ies. Last season they figured that 
Heeded some minor league exper- 
Q eilc e to round him out, and he was 
Mioned to the Baltimore club of the 
(.^national League. With that out- 
t e Pitched sensational ball, regis- 
s * ln S 15 victories against only five 
tbacks. This year he is back for 
^ other trial with the Phillies and 



, s a better than even chance to make 
6 grade. At least he will get a real 
Portunity to show what he can do.

Conservatory Picks 
Hotel Brunswick 
for Formal Dance 

. The Conservatory Dance Commit- 
tee has announced that the music 
students will don bib and tucker on 
Friday, April 29, for their annual 
formal dinner-dance which is to be 
held this year at Hotel Brunswick in 
Lancaster. In spite of appearaices 
the Committee has not been negli- 
gent, but has been working on the 
dance for some time, the main hold- 
up being the selection of a date suit-

Volleyball Tourney 
Progresses Rapidly 

The Women's Volley Ball Tourna- 
ment is now in full swing with games 
being played nearly every afternoon 
and evening. After the Easter vaca- 
tion, the W. A. A. plans to hold initia- 
tion for new members and also elec- 
tion of officers for next year. At the 
annual banquet to take place some 
time after May Day it is probable 
that Miss Anne Hodgkins will be the 
guest speaker. Miss Hodgkins will be 
remembered from previous visits to 
our campus. 



Dr. Colligan of Hunter College 
maintains that "the period of educa-

Seniors Victors in 
Interclass Playoff 

For the second year in a row ex- 
perience proved the deciding factor 
in the interclass basketball loop. Last 
year's senior class team won rather 
handily, and last Thursday this 
year's senior team won the 1938 cham- 
pionship, but only after a playoff. 
In this playoff they overcame a stub- 
born sophomore team 34-24 by stag- 
ing a fine second half rally after a 
tight first half. 

In the first half the defensive side 
of the game held sway, neither team 
being able to score consistently as is 
indicated by the fact that the inter- 
mission count read seniors — 11, soph- 
omores — 10. The high scorer at this 
point was George Munday, '40, with 
six.

Liebchen 



Lovely one, these thoughts of spring 
Stir within me, 'till I sing 
"Dearest one, I love you." 

Now I'm sure the winter's gone 
Since your Easter bonnet's on, 
And I sing, "I love you." 

Soon will come the month of June, 
Then we'll sit, dear, 'neath the moon, 
While I say, "I love you." 

Oh, that all the year were such 
That e'en our hearts its youth would 
touch ; 

All the while, I love you. 

Now the spring is gone behind, 
But the winter's cold is not unkind 
Because, my dear, I love you. 

When our lives shall come to end, 
May God for you his angel send, 
Because, my dear, He loves you!

No. 27 



Fox Elected 
Y. W. President 
for Next Year 

Miller Vice-President; 
Plans Being Made for 
Cooperative "We Policy" 

At a chapel meeting on Monday, 
April 4, the women students of Leba- 
non Valley College elected members 
of the Y. W. C. A. Cabinet for the 
following year. Audrie Fox was cho- 
sen president, defeating Dorothy 
Yeakel by a narrow margin. 

When questioned as to her general 
plans for her term of office, the pres- 
ident-elect said: "I hope to inaugur- 
ate a 'We Policy' for the year 1938- 
39, so that each girl will feel herself 
a part of the association." Miss Fox 
added a plea, expressive of her de- 
sire for cooperation from the new 
cabinet members of the Young Wo- 
men's Christian Association. 

The voting for all the offices was 
close. The other officers for the com- 
ing year are: Vice President, Evelyn 
Miller; Corresponding Secretary, Ed- 
na Rutherford; Recording Secretary, 
Mildred Haas; Treasurer, Helen 
Bartlett; Pianist, Anna Mae Bomber- 
ger; Day Student Representatives, 
Anna Evans and Alice Ritchie; Ad- 
visers, Mrs. Green, Mrs. Lynch, Mrs. 
Stokes, and Mrs. Wallace. 



Seniors Discuss 
Coming Activities 

The Senior class held an important 
meeting on Teusday, April 5, to de- 
cide on details of the Senior Ball. It 
was decided after hot debate that the 
dance should be semi-formal rather 
than strictly formal. The place se- 
lected for the dance was the Harris- 
burg Country Club. No orchestra has 
been chosen to date. 

Members were informed that meas- 
urements for caps and gowns would 
be taken on Wednesday, April 6, from 
two to five P. M. 

It was deicded that persons who 
had only become members of the class 
this last year must pay for their own 
caps, gowns, programs, and i nvita- 
tions, while class funds would pay for 
°ther members. 



Mills Presents 
Booklet to Frosh 

Last year each student was given 
an "all scripture" sermon, compiled 
ar 'd arranged by Dr. S. F. Daugher- 
ty into booklet form. This booklet was 
^titled "The Way of Life." Dr. 
^augherty first gave this type of 
s ermon during an evangelistic cam- 
paign held in the Fifth Avenue Uni- 
ted Brethren Church, Columbus, 
°hio, during the winter of 1922. 
f^nce then he has put out three print- 
ln &s of this booklet, with the third 
0l> e being a revision. 

Through the courtesy of Mr. A. K. 
^ills, '04, of Annville, this revised 
edition will be given to the freshme?i 
this year.

May Day Celebration Brings 
Pageant of Months to Campus 



As an experiment this year, plans 
for the celebration of May Day on 
May 7 have been made and are being 
carried out by the members of the 
Junior class of the conservatory with 
Helen Himmelberger as general 
chairman. These students have cho- 
sen appropriate music for which they 
have written dances to be taught by 
them. The theme for the event is a 
Pageant of the Months of the Year. 
Each season will be introduced by a 
girl representing it. Father Time 
will act as master of ceremonies for 
the months from June until January 
when Baby New Year will take over 



his duties. The setting for the Queen 
and her court will be similar to last 
year's, but the central figure of the 
stage will be a huge calendar. An 
unusual feature will be the presence 
of the May Queens for the past ten 
years, gowned, if possible, in their 
original May Queen dresses. 

After the Processional, the first 
season to be introduced is Summer. 
June will be represented by the soph- 
omore women in a Flower Dance 
which has been arranged by Kathryn 
Yingst, Geraldine Boyer, and Ruth 
Keene. For July, John Zettlemoyer

Owen Displays 
Masterly Style 
in Piano Recital 

by Miss Nella Miller 
Another of our all too few faculty 
recitals took place on Monday evening, 
April fourth, when Benjamin Owen 
played the piano in Engle Hall. 

Mr. Owen displayed consummate 
taste in program construction. One 
enjoyed his fine stylistic contrasts 
from Beethoven to Scriabine. 

The striking tonal contrasts of the 
Bach-Siloti Organ Prelude in G minor 
made a commanding and effective 
opening number. To me the perform- 
ance of the Beethoven Variations was 
the high point of the program; the 
uncompromising rhythmical precis- 
ion, sharp dynamic outlines, the ease 
and reserve of his scintillating and 
powerful technic, all contributed to a 
stunning performance. And then 
Chopin — the sonata was given a fine 
sensitive performance and came to a 
rousing climax in the finale. The 
four Rachmaninoff Etudes, two open- 
ing the last group and two as encores, 
each with its distinct varied mood — 
fantastic, exultant, pessimistic — 
moods spontaneous, almost improvisa-

Baier Receives 
Burtner Award 

At a meeting of the faculty on 
Tuesday afternoon it was decided 
that the award from the Burtner Me- 
morial Fund for 1938 should be pre- 
sented to Howard N. Baier, of Pal- 
myra. Baier is a junior this year and 
a major in the chemistry department. 

The fund was established in 1935 
in memory of Mrs. Alice Evers Burt- 
ner, Class of 1883, by Daniel Burt- 
ner, Samuel Evers, and Evers Burt- 
ner. It is awarded each year to an 
outstanding member of the Junior 
Class selected by the faculty on the 
basis of scholarship, character, social 
promise, and financial need. 

The recipient of the award in 1937 
was Theresa Kathryn Stefan. 



Baier Chosen 
La Vie Editor 
by Committee 

Smith Receives Position 
of Business Manager; 
Ehrhart Assoc.-Editor 

The guiding of the policies of La 
Vie Collegiennb for the year 1938- 
39 will be in the keeping of Howard 
Baier, of Palmyra, Pa. Baier was 
approved by the faculty committee 
on La Vie Collegienne at a meeting 
held Tuesday afternoon, the commit- 
tee being composed of Dr. George G. 
Struble, Dr. M. L. Stokes, and Dr. 
Paul A. W. Wallace. The selection 
was made on the recommendation of 
Boyd Shaffer, present editor. 

At the same time the name of Carl 
Ehrhart was approved for associate 
editor, and that of Raymond Smith 
for business manager. A circulation 
manager, as yet unselected, will be 
added to the new staff at a later time 
to replace Ernest Weirick, retired. 

Baier has served on La Vie repor- 
torial staff for two years, and while 
serving in that capacity has picked 
up some experience which ought to 
stand him in good stead. Smith has 
served as assistant to the business 
manager, Curvin Dellinger, for the 
last year, and thus will enter on his 
new position with a considerable 
foreknowledge of his work. 

The new staff will start work with 
the first issue following the Easter 
vacation and will produce the remain- 
ing half-dozen issues or so before the 
summer recess. The method of select- 
ing and inducting the new staff in 
the spring offers opportunity for 
smoother operation, and to get off to 
a flying start for the fall season. 

The remainder of the staff will be 
announced by the new editor in the 
next issue of La Vie. 



Chem Club Plans 
Inspection Tour 

The Chemistry Club will make a 
trip to Baltimore this Friday to in- 
spect the U. S. Industrial Alcohol 
Plant and the American Smelting 
and Refining Company. 

The group, which will be composed 
of about twenty-five students headed 
by Dr. Bender, will leave Annville at 
six o'clock a. m. in cars furnished by 
members of the group. The morning 
will be spent in the alcohol plant, 
where the students will see the dis- 
tillation of ethyl alcohol in 60 foot 
stills. The afternoon will be spent in 
studying the purification of blister 
copper at the smelting and refining 
company. 

The return home will be made in 
the evening of the same day. 



Thanks! 

L. V. C. Glee Club and Band 
wishes to thank the Pennway Hotel 
for their generosity in donating one 
of their trucks to haul glee club 
stands, large band instruments and 
other properties to our concert en- 
gagements in nearby cities. This

We wish to thank the members of the 
new Y. W. C. A. cabinet for their splen- 
did cooperation in withholding the re- 
sults of the May Queen election until 
publication of La Vie!!! 

the point system 

On page 4 of this issue, we have not- 
ed the introduction of the system of 
point awards for extra-curricular acti- 
vities, as concerns other schools. We 
believe that a system similar to this 
might well be profitably applied at Leb- 
anon Valley College. Extra-curricular 
activities certainly constitute an impor- 
tant part in the total development of 
the student, and every effort should be 
put forth to induce or require a parti- 
cipation in them. The quiescent Stu- 
dent-Faculty Committee might readily 
be entrusted with the necessary calcula- 
tions and administration involved, and 
the faculty might then incorporate ap- 
propriate requirements and regulations 
into the curricular requirements. 



ave . . . 

With this issue of La Vie the senior 
members of the staff relinquish their 
incumbency. Our association with the 
paper has been thoroughly enjoyable, 
and we feel that here was an excellent 
opportunity to learn something about 
journalism, by which we have profited 
greatly. 

For the most obvious reasons a news- 
paper can not truly be a "news" paper 
when run on a weekly basis. For this 
reason an editor of such must attempt 
to make his paper acceptable, not by 
virtue of the "scoops" he may secure, 
but by reason of any interesting and 
novel way he may present subjects 
which have for several days ceased to 
be active "news." 

During our tenure of office we have 
been guided by that one outstanding 
principle: To make La Vie interesting. 
To this end we have subjected the pa- 
per to many innovations: New type, 
headline experiments, page layouts, fea- 
ture articles, column work, and ques- 
tionnaires. Art work in La Vie this 
year has more than doubled that of pre- 
vious years. 

Oftimes it has been difficult to attain 
this goal because of an absolute lack 
of material. However, an evaluation of 
all results must be tempered by a con- 
sideration of the means at ones' dis- 
posal. 

Finally, we wish our successors the 
same measure of enjoyment we have 
derived from our work. We also en- 
courage our readers to give the same 
constructive criticism and serious atten- 
tion that La Vie has received in the 
past. 




BEYONDi^C&MPUS 

The secretary of this department 
who has charge of things statisti- 
cal has just completed his yearly 
survey of new collegiate organiza- 
tions, and makes the following re- 
port of undergraduate institutions 
that have been chartered in the last 
month: 

1. Future Slackers of America, 
founded by Lehigh University un- 
dergraduates who believe there can 
be no war if nobody attends. 

2. Anti-Corsage League— place 
of founding is undetermined, but it 
has chapters on countless cam- 
puses. 

3. Shirley Temple Club, found- 
ed at Yale University by admirers 
of the famed child movie star. 

4. Woman Haters' League, 
founded at Haverford College to 
give students more time for study 
during examination periods. 

5. Organized Cassanovas of 
America, inaugurated at University 
of Wichita with no plan of action 
but a contemplated parody of Euro- 
pean politics. 

For Sigma Chis at the Univer- 
sity of Florida, "hello" is an old- 
fashioned way of answering the 
telephone. To impress you with 
their individuality, they answer the 
phone in this manner: "This is the

and enlightenment, known to the 
masses as magnificent Sigma Chi.

"Ae fond kiss, and then we sev- 
er! » So wrote the Romanticist 

Robert Burns. All that outburst 
of affection is perfectly legitimate 
and cannot be in itself condemned. 
3ut it may lead to serious conse- 
quences in more ways than one. For 
instance, take the example of one 
Paul Horn, third floor east, Men's 
Dorm. He has learned recently 
that one can come uncomfortably 
close to being decapitated by indul- 
gence in tne sport mentioned above, 
especially when one isn't at all sure 
of what the chauffer is going to do. 
He, that is, the aforementioned Mr. 
Horn, was leaning in a car window 
exchanging one last farewell, ob- 
livious, of course, to all surround- 
ing conditions, when suddenly the 
car began to roll backwards. By 
unusual agility he managed to ex- 
tricate himself in time, 

Then with the rest of the cases 
of boy and girl, there is the record 
of one Mr. Maury, variously known 
as Joe, Gus, or Red. In last week's 
"What They Say" column he un- 
wisely committed himself on the 
question of his favorite pastime. 
We quote "Neckin'. I'm a lover." 
Those are his exact words, as spok- 
en for the press. But he reckon- 
ed without the object of his affec- 
tion. She, in the person of Miss 
Yeakel, raked him over the coals 
in no uncertain terms. Why the 
very idea, the colossal nerve, etc., 
etc., etc!!!!! As a result Joe no 
longer is going to hand out his 
comment to one and all, regardless 
of what he thinks, and especially 
to a member of the press. 



When, one beautiful spring night 
we barged into a rehearsal, we 
were greeted musically by Myrtle 
Leff, seated at the Kalo piano tink- 
ling gently away. 'Twas a beauti- 
ful sight. The fact is, we are in- 
clined to sympathize with the male 
members of the cast who take 
turns walking to the dorm with 
her. Please send a bouquet of gar- 
denias to Harold Moody— he's the 
lucky man who has conquered the 
heroine's heart for the night of the 
Kalo Anniversary. 



And speaking of Mr. Moody, you 
know, he is taking over Marsh 
Fry's part in the play. Too bad! 
We were really looking forward to 
Fry's debut on the L. V. Stage. On 
the other hand, however, Moody de- 
serves a curtain call for stepping 
so gracefully into a part like this. 



What They Say 

Question — Do you think the 
modern co-ed is more interested 
in marriage or a career? 



Evelyn Mae Strickler, Junior: — 
Women are always interested in 
marriage. 

Evelyn Miller, Sophomore: — 
Marriage absolutely! 

Clifford Barnhart, Senior: — Wo- 
men differ as men do, some prefer- 
ring a career; then too, marriage 
is a career to some. 

Mary Touchstone, Sophomore: — 
Who wants to be an old maid? 

Louise Saylor, Sophomore: Mar- 
riage naturally. 

Ernestine Jagnesak, Senior: — 
It's hard to tell sometimes. 

Jean Houck, Junior: — Marriage 
is the natural instinct. 

Gail Spangler, Senior: — The av- 
erage co-ed today attempts to 
create the impression that she is 
more interested in a career, but un- 
der the surface she contemplates 
marriage. Perhaps it's the choice 
of the lesser evil. 

David Byerly, Senior: — The mod- 
ern co-ed is more interested in a 
career, if, as yet, she has not been 
fortunate enough to find a good 
prospect.

Vox Populi 



April 4, 1938. 
Clyde A. Lynch, President 
Lebanon Valley College. 
Annville, Pa. 
Dear Dr. Lynch: 

I am very sorry it is necessary to 
call your attention to an editorial un- 
der the title, "AGITATION AT THE 
ASTOR," which appeared in the cur- 
rent issue of your college publication 
under date of March 31, 1938. I feel 
obligated to inform you of the true 
circumstances which inspired the 
writing of that editorial. 

On Monday or Tuesday of last 
week I had the unpleasant duty of 
asking a young man to leave the the- 
atre because of disorderly conduct, 
having annoyed my patrons with loud 
remarks during the performance. He 
later returned and informed me he 
was a college student, which, upon 
inquiry, was confirmed, and told me 
he understood the admission was re- 
funded when one was put out of a 
theatre. I refused for reasons which 
I am sure you will understand. Then 
he made the threat that it was with- 
in his power to turn the college stu- 
dents away from my theatre, and 
said he would do so. 

Please be assured that I am trying 
to serve this community with the best 
entertainment and facilities possible, 
and I do cherish student patronage. 
I *>m sure your students are not dis- 
satisfied with this theatre nor my op- 
eration of it as set forth in that edi- 
torial. I would feel very grateful if 
you would have a retraction posted 
on your bulletin boards immediately, 
and published in the same column in 
the next issue of the college paper. 
Sincerely yours, 
Astor Theatre, Annville, Pa. 

C. E. PIERSOL. 



Editor's Note: Since Mr. Piersol has 
directed no correspondence to us, we do 
not feel obligated to take further action 
on the matter. We print the above 
simply in the spirit of fairness. Tn> 
students may judge for themselves. 



And now for our surprise! Take 
care to watch the handsome Mundy 
as Dr. Fabry. He is supposedly in 
love with our fair heroine and, 
along with others too numerous to 
mention, has gone out of his way 
to play the part. 



If you, playgoers, are inclined to 
be a linguistic artist, you'll enjoy 
hearing Becky Parks speak French, 
English, German, Czech and Penn- 
sylvania German. Beat that if you 
can! 



And, by the way of bidding our 
loyal readers adieu, may we say 
it's been fun knowing you. You 
can show your appreciation of this 
column by watching the coming 
plays we've tried to give tips on, 
and being good until we meet 
again.

'Me Thinks-' 

Minor Letters Should 
Be Given in Tennis 

By Rog Saylor, Sports Editor 

Since this is the 
last column to be 
cranked out by ye 
sports ed, he feels 
that it is highly in 
order ior him to 
express* his thanks 
to ti'osc who have 
aiued him through- 
out uk past year, 
and also to offer 
tenia suggestions 
to those who administer athletic pol- 
icies. Especially helpful on numerous 
occasions has been Publicity Director 
U r. Ulements who was always reauy 
10 give such lniormation as ne coulu. 
G'oacnes J? rock ana Metoxen were both 
very cooperative on all occasions. .Last 
but not least, were the athletes them- 
selves. Their generally Iriendly atti- 
tude was ever-inspiring to the sports 
ed. 

• • • 

This writer feels that one of the 
best practices that could be establish- 
ed at this institution is not only to 
award the athletes with certificates 
proving that they have earned their 
letters, but also to really give them 
uiese letters for which they have 
generously given of their time and 
talents. The present practices tend 
to snow that the school uses their 
aimetes as purely publicity agents, 
out is not waling to give them some 
outward toKen by which they can be 
uiatmguished from the non-athletes, 
undoubtedly this would promote a 
Defter feeling between athletes and 
auministration. 

• • • 
Why is it that members of the var- 
sity tennis team are not credited with 
naving won letters of some sort? It is 
unreasonable to expect that they be 
awarded the same letters that are 
awarded to members of the football, 
DasKetbaii, and baseball teams, but 
there is no reason why this college 
cannot follow the practice in other 
schools oi awarding "Minor" letters 
to the tennis players. How can the 
tennis men feel that they are really 
representing the college when they 
are not being given any official rec- 
ognition whatsoever? 

• • • 

Among the forgotten men at this 
institution are the cheerleaders. Who 
does not like a football game better 
for the cheerleaders? Why is it that 
so many football fans know very lit- 
tle about the technique of the game, 
but still rarely miss a game? It is 
because of the color provided by an 
enthusiastic crowd egged on by the 
cheerleaders. Yet, cheer leading is 
one of the most thankless jobs on the 
campus. When spirit is lacking, the 
cheerleader is blamed. When spirit is 
at its highest peak, the cheerleader is 
a foregone conclusion, and is given 
little credit. The result has been 
that we have not had really efficient 
cheerleading at all, but rather a hap- 
hazard, uncoordinated system (?), 
that has thrived only because of the 
s Pontaneous personalities of some of 
l he martyrs. Let's start making this 
cheerie ading an attractive honor for 
Vv hich the best available material is 
utilized. Give the cheerleaders a place 
111 the sun; give them a special cheer- 
leader's letter as a recognition of 
their service to dear old L. V. C. Make 
^he honor of leading cheers the envy 
°f every student of Lebanon Valley! 
Administration! make your athletic 
c °htests more attractive by taking ad- 
Vantage of all available sidelights pos- 
Sl hle and you will get better attend- 
ances!

While ye sports ed is at it he might 
as well make one more suggestion, 
tft at is that a bigger and better in-

Lebanon Valley Collegians' 7 ] 




Left to Right— "Laddie" Timko, Jim Ralston, Ernest Weirick, Warren Brown, 

and Phil Lester 



L. V. Students Get 
Steamer Berth 
This Summer 

Weirick, Ralston and 
Lester in Orchestra 

In an interview with a reporter 
ior La Vie, Phil Lester today con- 
firmed the rumor that a number of 
i^eoanon Valley students will be 
members of an orchestra which will 
play its way to Europe and back this 
summer. 

The personnel of the group will be: 
Jimmie Ralston, piano; Ernie Wei- 
rick, saxophone; Phil Lester, trom- 
bone; Warren Brown, trombone ; Lad- 
die TiniKO, drums and vibraphone. 
With the exception of Brown, a for- 
mer L. V. student, now attending a 
music school in New York, and Tim- 
ko, a band-leader from Wjndber, Pa., 
the orchestra is exclusively a Lebanon 
v aney organization. 

This group will sail on June 4 from 
New York playing on the S. S. Ko- 
nigstein which will be bound for Ant- 
werp. After a nine-day crossing they 
will spend several days at liberty on 
the continent, visiting various parts 
of England, France, and Holland. 
They will then return on the S. S. 
Westernland. .both these boats belong 
to the Red Star Lines. 

When interviewed, Phil Lester, 
spokesman for the group, stated that 
the name of the orchestra will be the 
Lebanon Valley Collegians. Ques- 
tioned concerning who will be the 
leader of the band, he replied, "There 
is no leader; we just get together 
and make music — that's all. Just like 
we did Friday when that official from 
the Red Star Lines was here to listen 
to us play — you heard it, didn't you?" 

Other members of the group ex- 
pressed similar opinions. Most of 
them were chiefly desirious of seeing 
Paris, although they named other 
parts of Europe as being also on the 
itinerary, provided time permits. 



tramurai sports program be worked 
out. It never seemed as though the 
Men's Senate should be the organiza- 
tion that sponsored the limited intra- 
mural program that we have, albeit 
they have done a very fine job, but 
that iespons:bility should be should- 
ered by the physical ed department. 
In spite of the fact that we do have 
limited facilities, we do have two com- 
petent coaches, and facilities for a 
larger program than is now being car- 
ried on. It is not a proven fact that 
the student body would appreciate 
this extended opportunity, but why 
not at least give them a chance to 
show if they would support a larger 
program? (This is aimed at men's in- 
tramural sports only.) 



Eclectic Group 
Organized by 
Men Students 

Socio-Political Merger 
Embraces Twenty Members 

For a number of years, the Eclec 
tic Club, a selective organization of 
women students, has been active on 
the campus. Quite recently, a similar 
society has arisen on the opposite 
side of the collegiate house to take 
its place among the campus organi- 
zations. 

This newcomer to the family of 
campus groups, insofar as your La 
Vie reporter could gather from sev- 
eral members, largely owes its incep- 
tion to its founder, John Gongloff, 
and President Alan Schuler. It is 
designed to embrace twenty members, 
of whom ten are drawn from the sen- 
ior class, six from the junior class, 
three from the sophomore class, and 
one freshman. Among the present 
members, including those elected by 
the founders, are: Seniors, John 
Gongloff, Clarence Aungst, Alan 
Schuler, Eugene Shenk, Adolph Cap- 
ka, Dean Gasteiger, David Byerly, 
Gordon Davies, Walter Fridinger. 
Juniors: Coda Sponaugle, Robert 
Strayer, Howard Baier, Carl Demp- 
sey. Sophomores: Chris Walk, James 
Whitman. Freshman: Frank Len- 
non. 

Although the club is designed pri- 
marily as a social organization, its 
activities have been partly political, 
such as in the recent May Queen elec- 
tion where each member pledged five 
votes for the Club's candidate. A 
slight split of opinion did not impair 
success. 

According to one member, the club 
is now taking the matter of the Prom 
Leader election under consideration. 

Meetings of the organization are 
held at the Green Terrace and in the 
rooms of the various members. 



Further Catalog 
Changes Noted 

The article in last week's La Vie 
concerning the changes in the new 
college catalogue omitted the read- 
justments that have been made in 
the Business Administration course. 
Cost Accounting, Auditing and Adver- 
tising have been dropped, while two 
new subjects, Contemporary Econo- 
mic Problems and Economic History 
of Europe have been substituted. The 
former course is open to Juniors 
and Seniors to enable them to ap- 
ply the principles of Economic The- 
ory. 

A minor in Business Administra- 
tion has also been added. 



Practice Game 
Reveals Power 
at the Plate 

Capka, Bentzel lead 
attack; Kuhn shows 
hurling ability 

In spite of icy winds last Satur- 
day, Chief Metoxen sent his diamond 
hopefuls through a seven-inning 
practice game. Naturally the real 
purpose of the tilt was to see just 
what the various men could do in 
something resembling a real contest. 
Three of the new men showed up par- 
ticularly well; those being Frank 
Kuhn, Barney Bentzel, and Bill Try- 
an. 

The first of these, Frank Kuhn, 
started out playing first base for one 
team and ended up by pitching for 
the other nine. At first base he han- 
dled himself like a real ball player, 
and on the mound he proved the most 
effective of the four hurlers who saw 
action. Furthermore he was the only 
pitcher who did not walk at least one 
man. His assortment of tantalizers 
seems to presage a successful season 
for him. 

Bentzel held down first for one of 
the outfits, and did it in a very pol- 
ished fashion. His showing left him 
very much in the running for the 
regular first baseman's job for the 
season. As a batter he recorded the 
only extra-base blow of the after- 
noon, a rousing triple to right-cen- 
ter. Important also is the fact that 
there were, two men on the bases at 
the time. 

Tryan, playing left field, was not 
so much in the limelight, but he did 
maneuver under the one fly ball out 
his way in expert manner. His two 
clean hits to center field each drove 
home a runner. 

Several of the other infielders dem- 
onstrated that they are in for fine 
seasons, notably Captain Adolph Cap- 
ka, and Ralph Billett, at third and 
second respectively. Both fielded 
faultlessly, and Capka chimed in with 
three bingles, while Billett smashed 
two solid singles. Lynn Kitzmiller, 
stationed between the two above men- 
tioned veterans, seemed a bit shaky. 

Of the infielders on the other team 
only Frank Lennon showed enough to 
warrant serious consideration for his 
position. He handled his three 
chances at short cleanly, but was un- 
able to hit the ball out of the infield. 
Gordon Davies, mainly due to his un- 
familiarity with the position, had a 
rather tough afternoon at third, but 
he did get a hit. He may win a start- 
ing berth as an outfielder. 

Both catchers, Ed Kress and Chris 
Walk, showed that the receiving de- 
partment is well under control. Of 
the remaining outfielders, Don Lud- 
wig looked best. He shagged two flies 
like a veteran, and made one hit. Bob 
Brown showed promise, but Tony 
Rozman had a tough afternoon all 
around. He missed a fly, and fanned 
his three trips to the plate. 

Marsh Frey, the losing pitcher, 
looked good for two innings, but 
bogged down thereafter. It is obvi- 
ous, however, that Frey was working 
for control, only, and not to put any- 
thing in particular on the ball. 

Danny Seiverling took both strike 
out and walking honors for the 
game. He had a hard job finding the 
plate in the first inning, but looked 
pretty good thereafter. Bill Scherfel 
was hit rather hard, but he may 
prove to be an ace in the hole. 

The other important pitching can- 
didate, George Katchmer, saw action 
only as a pinch hitter. Last spring 
Katchmer injured his flipper by try- 
ing to bear down before he was in 
condition, and the Coach did not want 
to risk a recurrence of this injury. 
In early workouts Katchmer has 
shown a tendency toward wildness, but 
seems to be overcoming that gradual- 



German Club Play 
Travels to U. of P. 

On Saturday the German Club of 
Lebanon Valley will present the one- 
act comedy, "Einer Musz Heiraten!" 
by Alexander Wilhelm, on the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania stage in 
Philadelphia. This play, it will be 
remembered, was presented to the lo 
cal public last March 2 on the cam- 
pus and was the first attempt of this 
kind on this stage. The success of 
the production at that time induced 
the director and club officers to stage 
the hilarious comedy in competition 
with other presentations by German 
departments of leading colleges and 
universities of Eastern states. Col- 
leges from New Jersey, Maryland, 
Delaware and Pennsylvania, in all 
probability will be represented in the 
Modern Cultural Olympics, as the af- 
fair is officially named. Plays will 
be presented Saturday afternoon and 
night by the Gelehrten of these col- 
leges. 

The local cast, directors, and mem- 
bers of the German Club making the 
trip to the University will take part 
in a banquet held on Saturday night 
for all schools participating in the af- 
fair. The local actors will perform 
Saturday night following the ban- 
quet. A dance will follow all the pre- 
sentations on Saturday night. The 
local travellers will remain at the 
homes of friends on Saturday and 
will return Sunday. 

Those attending the Olympics in- 
clude the cast composed of Esther 
Flom, Marianne Treo, William Clark 
and Calvin Spitler, the directors, 
Robert Spohn and Dr. Lena Lietzau, 
the make-up artist, Sylva Harcle- 
rode, several stage men, and friends 
of those participating.

Kalo Shapes Up 
Play and Dance 
for Anniversary 

Ira Bowman's Orchestra 
to Furnish Dance Music 

The presentation of "Roasum'a 
Universal Robots," Friday, April 22, 
by the joint efforts of Delphian ana 
Kaiozetean Literary Societies, inau- 
gurates the first week-end of celebra- 
tion of a busy spring season. Tnio 
will marK the beginning of tne testi 
vities associated with the 61st anni- 
versary oi the Kaiozetean Society, iu 
be climaxed by a colorful dinner- 
dance at the Hotel Hershey, Satur- 
day. This is one of the events that, 
every members looks forward to; ttis 
time he can "step out" for a night oi 
glamor amid the beautiful surround- 
ings of the hotel patio. A special 
invitation has been sent to the alum- 
ni of the organization and their pres- 
ence will greatly aid in making the 
affair a success. 

The play is rapidly assuming form 
and good entertainment is promised 
tor tnose attending. The hearty co- 
operation of the sister society, Del- 
pnian, has greatly helped m making 
this play possible. Plans for the din- 
ner-dance are practically completed 
according to latest reports of the an- 
versary president, John Walmer. 
ie dinner is scheduled to start at 
i UU o clock and will be served in the 
spamsh Room'. At 9:00 o'clock tnose 
in attendance are privileged to swing 
and sway to the tuneful rhythm of 
j i .bowman's Orchestra. 



IN. Y. A. Students 
xieceive Less Aid 
than Last iear 

WASHINGTON, D. C— (ACP)— 
One-third fewer college and graduate 
students than last year are receiving 
tederal assistance under the Nation- 
al "iouth Administration's student aid 
program, executive director, Aubrey 
Williams announced last week. 

Cause for the decline is the sub- 
stantial decrease in appropriations 
received by the NYA unoer the Em- 
ergency Relief Appropriations Act of 
1937. 

This year no separate allotments 
were made for college and graduate 
aid. Instead, the colleges and univer- 
sities were assigned quotas of stud- 
ents on the basis of 8 per cent of the 
combined enrollments of undergrad- 
uate and graduate students, as of Oc- 
tober 1, 1930. .b'or the current aca- 
demic year, the national quota is 75,- 
yyd, as compared with a quota of 124,- 
»i8 during the year 1930-37. 

"1 hough the quota of students rep- 
resents a 39 per cent reduction over 
last year," Mr. Williams pointed out, 
"it is interesting to note that actually 
during December, 1937, only 32.0 per 
cent fewer students were being aid- 
ed. The reason for this is that the 
quotas were based on an average 
monthly payment of $15. In most of 
*he institutions, however, because of 
he large number of applications for 
aid, this average payment has been 
reduced so as to assist as many stud- 
ents as possible. Thus in December, 
1937, preliminary figures show that 
the NYA paid an average wage of 
$11.72 to 95,025 college and graduate 
students. The average wage of the 
undergraduates was $11.58; while 
that of the graduate students was 
$17.77." 

The total allotment of funds for the 
academic year 1937-38 amounts to 
$10,236,720.25. These allotments to 
the states are made on a monthly 
basis, usually over a nine-month but 
sometimes over an eight-month per- 
iod. The monthly allotment to all 
states, the District of Columbia and

Dickinson College to Limit 
Extra-Curricular Activities 

Point System of Scale for Time Participation 
and Value Points set up by Faculty Committee 



Student Opinion 
Canvassed in Poll 
by Brown Daily 

Questions of Foreign Policy 
Put to 1,200,000 Students 

The latest attempt to obtain the 
opinion of college students through- 
out the United States on questions of 
international significance is being 
conducted at present by the Brown 
University Daily Herald. The sur- 
vey, in which 1,200,000 college stu- 
dents will participate, will seek a 
reiereivdum of student opinion on the 
poncy of the United States as re- 
gards to the subjects of war and 
peace, on compulsory military train- 
ing, the naval policy, and the posi- 
tion of the United States in the Far 
East situation. 

In addition to having the backing 
of the American Institute of Public 
Opinion, leaders in the business of 
poll-taking in the nation, the move *3 
also supported by nineteen organi- 
zations under the head of the United 
Student Peace Committee, which has 
undertaken co-responsibility in the 
canvass. Among the members of this 
group of nineteen are the National 
intercollegiate Christian Council, the 
League of Nations Association, the 
National Student Union, and the For- 
eign Policy Association. 

College publications from all parts 
of the country are taking part in the 
poll in order to crystallize campus 
opinion and judgment on matters not 
only vital to the foreign policy of the 
government of the United States, but 
to the welfare of the nation as a 
whole. 

A total of over seven hundred fifty 
undergraduate newspapers have an- 
nounced their intention to support 
the movement and have pledged to 
cooperate to the extent of taking 
votes on their respective campuses. 

An analysis of the results obtained 
from all the colleges polled will be 
made and released to college editors 
throughout the United States for 
publication the week of April 25. 

In view of the general futility and 
unreliability of most peace polls, La 
Vie did not conduct a survey on this 
campus. 



As annouonced in the most recent 
issue of "The Dickinsonian" extra- 
curricular activities will no longer re- 
main as merely extra-curricular ac- 
tivities at Dickinson College, but will 
have strict faculty regulation and re- 
striction. This policy will be put in 
effect beginning September, 1938. A 
definite amount of extra-curricular 
activity will also be required for grad- 
uation, according to the faculty re- 
port. 

An extra-curricular activities point 
system has been worked out by the 
faculty committee on activities, con- 
sisting of a scale of hours of actual 
participation and value points for each 
activity. By this dual system of to- 
talling and evaluating credit, the lim- 
itation of activity will be based on the 
number of hours spent in each activ- 
ity and upon scholastic standing while 
credit for graduation will be taken 
from the value points accredited to 
each organization and activity. 

While freshmen are not to be re- 
quired to engage in any extra-curri- 
cular activity except physical educa- 
tion without the approval of the 
Deans, every member of the upper 
three classes will have to earn a min- 
imum requirement of 100 points. 

As far as scholastic requirements 
and limitations are concerned, A stu- 
dents will be permitted unlimited pri- 
vileges, those with a B average will 
be limited to 1,000 hours, those with 
C to 750 hours, and those with D 
to 500 hours. 

Although not all the activities ap- 
peared in the committee report, pro- 
vision was made for fitting recogni- 
tion of those besides the more perma- 
nent ones, such as athletics, fraterni- 
ties and sororities, etc. 

The foundational purpose for thus 
handling extra-curricular activities 
lies in the belief that such activities 
rightfully belong as a part of the 
student's development, and yet that 
they should not take undue time and 
thus rob him of some other phase of 
his development. 



"Too many college professors are 
epitaph polishers dusting off the 
tombstones of big names in history." 
With this biting criticism of the aca- 
demic leaders in U. S. higher educa- 
tion, Dr. George W. Crane, North- 
western University psychologist, de- 
nounced those who teach in modern 
colleges and universities.

substantial part for background; Mr. 
Bennett is the home loving and hen- 
pecked family man; Jane Bennett is 
the most nearly straight character ir 
the play, being the next oldest sister 
of Elizabeth; Lydia Bennett is the 
frivolous "baby" of the family and 
causes much gossip and agony for 
her realtives; Mr. Bingley is Jane's 
sweetheart and very nearly a normal 
man instead of a caricature; Lady 
Catherine, Mr. Collins, Lady Lucas, 
and Mr. Wickham are all delightful 
character parts and are likely to be 
well done. 

Dr. Struble said that he is ex- 
tremely well pleased with his cast 
who, when last seen, were busily en- 
gaged in getting over their laughing 
spells during the first reading of the 
play. The director also remarked, 
"There is a great deal of talent 
among the Freshmen. They just need 
a little encouragement." To us it 
sounds promising. And, remember, it 
is the Broadway version we're giv- 
ing, in case someone should inquire.

lien's Teams Meet 
^ith Lincoln U. 
in Final Debate 

Teams Enjoy Fair Season 
with .500 Batting Average 

The men's debating teams held 
their last debates of the 1938 season 
w jth a dual meet with Lincoln Uni 
versity of Oxford, Maryland. Curvin 
pellinger and Raymond Smith jour- 
neyed to Lincoln to debate Messrs. 
Williams and Rey in a non-decision 
affair, while Calvin Spitler met the 
Lincoln negative team of debaters 
Hamilton and Lanier at home. The 
latter was also a non-decision debate 
and was argued before a political 
science class of Professor Gingrich, 

The debating season just finished 
was of average success, with the 
teams about splitting even on the 
number of wins and losses in the de- 
cision debates. A number of the total 
of 18 contests were on a non-aecision 
basis, while a few debates were can- 
celled after they had been arranged 
for. 

The debaters which composed Leb- 
anon Valley's teams this year were 
Clifford Barnhart, Calvin Spitler, 
and Carl Ehrhart on the affirmative, 
and Curvin Dellinger, Raymond 
Smith, and Marlin Espenshade. Spit- 
ler also acted as debate manager. 

Highlights of the season were the 
southern trip of the affirmative, in 
which they debated Gettysburg, 
Western Maryland, American Uni- 
versity of Washington, D. C, and 
Washington College, and the nega- 
tive's trip to New York, during which 
time they met Upsala, City College 
of New York, and Wagner College 
on Staten Island. 

Most of the contests at home were 
held in Philo Hall, and several pro- 
fessors obligingly tendered their 
classes to use as audiences for the 
debates. All were argued on the Ore- 
gon system, except the debates with 
Elizabethtown and the home debate 
with Wagner.

Work Recruit organization was held 
in North Hall parlor, Monday even- 
ing, April 4. The devotions were in 
charge of Audrey Fox and Paul Slo-

tional in character, were all beautiful- 
ly captivated by Mr. Owen. The 
Scriabine was delicate and improvis- 
atory. To my taste the Liszt Etude 
in D flat is unimproved by Siloti's 
notations and additions. The pro- 
gram came to a brilliant conclusion 
with Liszt's Transcendental Etude in 
A minor. 

It is a pleasure to see and hear an 
artist so free of mannerisms and with 
obviously a tremendous technic and 
emotional reserve. With his ease in 
performance we can sit back and 
gloat over the beauties of the music. 
Our enthusiasm mounted at the close 
of the program until we felt like 
stamping our feet and shouting 
bravoes. 



Up to ten different races have been 
represented in the University of Ha- 
waii at one time.

Travelers Prove Reticent 
on Music Convention Details 



Rutledge Declares "Spare Time" Nonexistent; 
Cox Loathe to Leave; Maberry Not So 



by Amy Meinhardt 

Concerning this trip to St. Louis to 
the Music Educators National Con- 
vention, our investigation revealed 
one thing — the L. V. C. student repre- 
sentatives have lost some of the gift 
of gab. Are we to suppose that they 
are too tired to talk or that the trip 
was too thrilling for words? All that 
Isabel Cox can do is stare sadly into 
space and say: 

"I'll probably never see him 
again." Lucille Maberry merely re- 
ports in a matter-of-fact way that the 
food was excellent and that she slept 
soundly, while Uy Smith bluntly re- 
marks, "I have nothing to say." How- 
ever, we've had definite information 
that he was all keyed up about the 
trip. Perhaps he hasn't come down 
out of the clouds yet. 

Altogether, the "five" doled out 
these details: Starting from the Con- 
servatory at 5:30, Saturday morning, 
1,110, Isabel did not take her knitting) 
the group rode almost continuously 
during that day and also part of Sun- 
day. Foggy weather, a word-guess- 
ing game, long, straight roads with- 
out hills and a little car trouble were 
the outstanding attractions. Only the 
last threatened to add discord to the 
musical quintet. It seems that there 
were two theories as to the cause of 
a knocking sound in the engine. Lad- 
ies vs. gentlemen was the lineup, 
"Who's right?" the question, and a 
hot fudge sundae, the bet. The fern 
inine team lost the argument but 
didn't pay the bet. Puzzle: who won? 

After twenty hours of driving a dis- 
tance of 840 miles they arrived at St 
Louis rarin' to go. 

Program Highlights 

The five day program which fol- 
lowed was of a gigantic character 
There were several sessions being 
held practically every hour of the day 
so tne group separated according to 
their interests in special fields of 
music, borne highlights of the con 
vention, the theme of which was "The 
Integrated Program" with emphasis 
on performance, were: a chorus of 2,- 
000 voices, 'A negro choruses of 300 
voices, a band ol 700 and an orches- 
tra of 7v,0 members; Noble Cain as a 
conductor; a pageant celebrating 100 
years of music in America given by 
grade-school people of St. Louis; a 
Missouri Rural Schools' Festival ; and 
a demonstration by the Wentworth 
Military Academy Band, which show 
ed clock-like precision in its drills. 
Students and teachers from all over 
the United States gathered for the 
occasion — students supported by their 
own proud communities. One glee club 
of forty voices from the state of 
Washington had required $4,500 for 
the trip. 

No wonder that the L. V. C. "globe 
trotters" didn't see much of each oth 
er. When asked what he did during 
his spare time, Mr. Rutledge had dif 
ficulty in keeping his eyebrows from 
popping out of his forehead as he em- 
phatically declared it to be an un 
known thing during the convention 

The "five" started home wiser but 
certainly not sadder for their exper- 
ience. Cy learned how to take care 
of himself in a large city, Isabel 
found that there are better fish in 
the sea than were ever caught around 
local streams, Prof. Rutledge had to 
admit that it's a little difficult to 
teach an old dog new tricks, and Lu 
cille Maberry — well, there's no place 
like home, that is, if you know what 
we mean. 



Women Debate 
at Bucknell 

The affirmative Women's Debating 
team composed of Hazel Heminway, 
and Louise Saylor left Wednesday, 
April 6, for a debating trip to Buck- 
nell. The question for the debate, 
was the standard National Labor 
Relations Board debate topic. 



I. R. C. Meeting 

The I. R. C. will hold its bi- 
monthly meeting tonight at the 
home of Dr. E. H. Stevenson. The 
feature of the meeting will be a re-
